Genealogist’s 23rd Psalm

Genealogy is my pastime. I shall not stray.

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

It leadeth me into still Courthouses.

It restoreth my Ancestral Knowledge.

It leadeth me in the Paths of Census Records and Ships Passengers
lists for my Surname’s sake.

Yea, though I wade through the Shadows of Research Libraries
and Mircrofilm Readers,
I shall fear no Discouragement, for a Strong Urge is with me.

The curiosity and Motivations, they Comfort me.

It demandeth preparation of Storage Space for the Acquisition of
Countless Documents.

It annointeth my Head with burning Midnight Oil,
My Family Group Sheets runneth over.

Surely Birth, Marriage and Death dates shall follow me all the
Days of my Life;
And I shall dwell in the House of a Family History Seeker
Forever.
