RESEARCH - MY WAY
From England they came, from Germany too.
Ireland, the Netherlands, they gave me a few.
In Scotland I found some generations past.
That data some light on more ancestors did cast.
Oh, the questions Iíve asked and the prodding Iíve done
have given me years of unparalleled fun.
I search when I want to, or leave it alone,
and find when I go back, my family has grown.
Iíve spent lots of time, dollars more than a few,
but look what I got Ė I just found a new clue!
So it goes from one year to the next,
looking at charts and reading new texts.
Iíve networked a bit and found cousins galore,
some living here some on far away shores.
Iíve learned lots of history, of life years ago,
of jobs and of places that I never did know.
One fact that stands out every where I go back,
good character is something that we do not lack.
Hard working they were, rich by no means,
the best that they gave was the gift of good genes.
Thatís why I continue to look for new names
that allow me to enjoy the ancestry game.
Itís spreading its branches, my family tree.
Who knows, I might find youíre related to me.
