I met Dan Poffenberger at the recent AFFHO Congress in Auckland, New Zealand. Dan is an interesting fellow for several reasons. Many of us pursue genealogy as a hobby. Dan pursues genealogy as an vocation: he is a professional genealogist. Along the way he has developed an unusual hobby: he collects names. Not just any names, mind you, but unusual and humorous names, all with source citations that point to original documents.
I had a chance to talk with Dan at some length and he offered a number of examples of the names he has collected. Roots Television kindly provided a camera crew that recorded our conversation.
