The Genealogists Psalm
Genealogy is my pastime, I shall not stray.
It Maketh me lie down and examine half-buried tombstones. It Leadeth me into still courthouses;
It restoreth my ancestral knowledge.
It leadeth me in paths of census records and ship's passenger lists for my surname's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the shadows of research libraries and microfilm readers,
I shall fear no discourgement.
For a strong urge is within me;
The curiosity and motivation they comforteth me.
It annointeht my head with burning mid-night 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.
My family surnames are Christian, Zumbrunnen, More, Taylor, Lee, Brown, Torrey, Sessions, Price, Wing, Richards, Greene, Tirell, Haviland, Almy and Barlowe, Washburn, Alden, Chilton, Howland, Cooke.
I am also working on my children's deceased father's family. These names would be McArthur, McDonald, Wadsworth, Calebaugh, Mallory, Revill, Atkinson, Ellis, and Byrd.
If anyone has information on these names, I would be very interested.
