A Prayer for Genealogists
Lord, help me dig into the past And sift the sands of time That I might find the roots that made This family tree of mine.  Lord, help me trace the ancient roads On which my fathers trod, And led them through so many lands To find our present sod.
 Lord, help me find an ancient book or dusty manuscript, That's safely hidden now away in some forgotten crypt.  Lord, let it bridge the gaps that haunt my soul when I can't find this missing link between some name that ends the same as mine.

Future Genealogist

A modern mother was explaining to her little girl about pictures in the family photo album.  The mother said, "This is the geneticist with  your surrogate mother and here's your sperm donor  and your father's clone.  This is me holding you when you were just a frozen embryo."  "Who is that?" asked the daughter. "Oh," answered the mother, "The lady with the very troubled look on her face is your Aunt.  She's the family genealogist!"

Come look with me inside this drawer,
In this box I've often seen,
at the pictures, black and white,
Faces proud, still, serene.
I wish I knew these people,
These strangers in the box,
Their names and all of their memories
are lost among my socks.
I wonder what their lives were like,
how did they spend their days?
What about their special times?
I'll never know their ways.
If only someone had taken time
to tell who, what, where, or when,
these faces of my heritage would
come to life again.
Could this become the fate of pictures
we take today? 

The faces and the memories someday to be passed away?
Make time to save your stories, seize the opportunity when it knocks, or
someday you and yours could be:
"The Strangers in the Box!"
