Paperclipping Roundtable #88: I Scrap Dead People

Ana Cabrera and Jessica Sprague joined us this week to talk about digging up our dead relatives and scrapping what we find! [To be clear, since there seems to be some confusion among some readers: this episode is about genealogy, not scrapping memories of recently deceased family members.]

    I am offended at the title of this episode. I lost my husband five years ago, and the thought of “digging up” my dead relatives is extremely offensive. How about scrapping the memories of those we have lost, or those who have passed on. I’m surprised you would refer to those we love as “dead people” — very harsh.

      First Vicki, I’m terribly sorry for your loss. I’m also sorry that you took the reference to dead people in a way that it is completely NOT intended. This episode isn’t about scrapping memories, or people we knew and loved! This episode is about genealogy and tracing your family’s ancestry and scrapping it. In the genealogy world, there is inside jokes and humor just like there is in the scrapbook world. In genealogy terms the concept of “digging up dead relatives” doesn’t refer to recently lost loved ones. It refers to the people who were long dead before we were even born – people who would be entirely forgotten to history if we weren’t out there digging around in archives and courthouses and libraries and cemeteries piecing together their stories.
