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. -Author Unknown
