Researcher walks into the courthouse and asks for the Udder Book. Clerk has no idea what the Udder Book is and thinks the researcher means the “Other Book,” but that doesn’t make any sense either, so he asks the researcher.
I need the Udder Book. It’s the Udder Book. A professional genealogist told me to milk the records.
Well, I thought it was funny.
And it’s a good reminder that researchers need to metaphorically milk the records.
