Several years ago, I decided I would do my own based on using computer genealogy, my own needs and my own research:
On the 12th day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me --
Twelve Revolutionary War pension files with the Family Bible pages included (12)
Eleven passenger lists clearly written (22)
Ten Social Security Application and Claims records (30)
Nine Facebook postings from distant cousins (36)
Eight probate files (40)
Seven census pages (42)
Six land deeds (42)
Five newspaper obituaries (40)
Four marriage records (36)
Three family Bibles (30)
Two draft registration images (22)
And a new name in my family tree. (12)
I've put the total number in parenthesis of each item - if you sing the song all the way through, going one number at a time.
My true love is a busy girl, isn't she?
But, but, but ... that would take all the fun out of the ancestor search, wouldn't it?
