Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Create a Genealogy Related Poem

 Calling all Genea-Musings Fans: 

 It's Saturday Night again - 

time for some more Genealogy Fun!!

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1) Create a poem - rhyming, free verse, doggerel, limerick, etc. - about genealogy research, whether general or specific.

2) Post it on your blog, on Facebook, or in Comments to this post,  so all of the world can appreciate your creativity.  Please share a link in comments.

Have fun!

Here's mine:

There was a family named Lamphear
with an unwanted son Devier.
He was adopted by Smith,
I don't think it was myth,
his parents identity I would cheer!

Not exactly iambic pentameter, eh? Or exactly the right limerick meter, but appropriate considering one of my persistent research challenges.

There was an inventor Adolphé
Whose son killed his wife and then ran away...
He just vanished into history!
125 years t'was a mystery!
'Til DNA revealed a relative in Philly.

(True story, bad iambic pentameter and rhythm.)

It's all good - thank you all for braving the glare of online publishing. I even had a request to include mine in a family history! I said YES.
