23rd Psalm for Genealogists


Genealogy is my pastime, I shall not stray
It maketh me to lie down and examine tombstones
It leadeth me into still courthouses
It restoreth my Ancestral Knowledge
It leadeth me in the paths of census records
and ship's passenger list for my surnames' sake.
Yea though I walk through the shadows of research
libraries and microfilm readers I shall fear no discouragement,
for a strong urge is within me
The curiosity and motivation, they comfort me 
It demandeth preparation of storage space for the
acquisition of countless documents
It anointests 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.
