Poem: Family Tree

Family Tree

Researching my family tree,

Finding wondrous discovery.

One cousin hung for steeling horse.

‘Nother became a judge of course.

 –

Meeting now, cousins still alive.

This part helping to feed my drive.

Scan documents from long ago,

This takes time, making progress slow.

 –

Pour through documents, read entries

Of history spanning centuries.

Learning of my ancestral kin,

Explains the giddy mood I’m in.

 –

Plan to travel, to see the land,

Where great uncle, for gold, once panned.

Next voyage, will be with eyes new,

Seeing places from which I grew.

 June Nash

 

I have always had an interest in my family’s history, but only recently have taken the time to get actively involved. At this point, I am only gathering information that others have already dug up.  I am meeting relatives I thought long lost to me.  It is an exciting adventure.  As I was scanning documents onto my computer I wrote this poem: Family Tree.
