Following The Trail

By Bud Lemire

Following the trail of our ancestor
Looking for information that will lead to more
Walking down every path that we find
Knowing in spirit, that they won't mind

In fact, we know they are near
All things in time, become clear
We know the route they had taken
A journey to the past, when we awaken

We know the places, where we should go
And it touches a place, deep in our soul
Getting in touch with Cousins everywhere
The information, that we're willing to share

Sharing information, comparing each note
Making sure no errors, in each one we wrote
Putting the picture to the name
Resemblances can often be the same

I love to find people, who are on their own trail
Off on the sea, of their genealogical sail
Looking for information, that will lead to more
Following the trail, of ancestors who came before

Author Note:

I've been climbing my Family Tree since 1990.
In that time, I have found many relatives, and it
has been great enjoyment in all that I have found.
