This didn't happen to me directly, but my father used to be a genealogist (researching people's family histories for them). As a child, I remember on more than one occasion when the whole house was woken by the phone ringing in the early hours with some poor woman on the other end asking for a gynocologist. The perils of reading the phone book at 4am!

a professional genealogist? I've met some diehard hobbyists, but never a pro. That's kinda cool!
