Audrey Collins Quote

_Hatch,Match,& Dispatch_

While at RootsTech I attended a class taught by Audrey Collins.  She said something that still makes me smile.  She was referring to Vital Records and said it was such a boring thing to call them and prefers instead, “Hatch, match, and dispatch.”

That got us all chuckling.  I thought you, my dear readers, would also get a kick out of that.


You can find Audrey’s personal blog here, and her work at the National Archives of the UK here.
