A Genealogists Psalm

  • Genealogy is my pastime,

  • I shall not stray

  • It maketh me to lie down and examine half-buried gravestones.

  • It leadeth me into still courthouses;

  • It restoreth my ancestral knowledge.

  • It leadeth me in paths of census records & ship's passenger lists for my surname's sake.

  • Yea, though I walk through the shadows of research libraries & microfilm readers, I shall fear no discouragement.

  • For a strong urge is within me,

  • The curiosity & motivation they comfort me.

  • It demandeth preparation of storage space for the acquisition of countless documents.
    It annointeth my head with burning mid-night oil;

  • My family group sheets runneth over.

  • Surely birth, marriage, & death dates shall follow me all the days of my life;

  • And I shall dwell in the house of a family history seeker forever.
