Genealogist’s Prayer

 Genealogy is my passion ~ 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 into the path of census records
And ships passenger lists
For my surnames sake.
Yet though I wade through the shadows
Of research libraries & microfilm readers,
I shall fear no discouragement,
For a strong urge is with me.
The curiosity and motivation thy 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 & death dates
Shall follow me all the days of my life
And I shall dwell in the house of a family history seeker forever.

Amen ……
