If I only had a clue

My apologies to the Wizard of Oz folks.

IF I ONLY HAD A CLUE…

I could while away the hours
Consulting with some web sites
Of family history fame

I could save the data to my disc
Share it with my Uncle Fritz
If I only had a clue.

There’s my mother’s second cousin
Our e-mails would be buzzing
If I could understand

How to trace things back to Adam
Or at least beyond my Gramma
If I only had a clue.

OH WHY, just tell me why
The internet is popular with some?
I can’t find a thing perhaps because
I am all THUMBS….
And haven’t begun.

I’d be absolutely grateful
When tackling this plateful
Of family history sites

If you’d be so very gentle
When discussing things potential
So I’d surely get a clue!

BACKGROUND
Years ago, when working with the Manasota PAF Users Group, I'd occasionally attempt to scare the gang away by singing -- (yes, singing) a bit of a parody with a genealogy theme. Ol' Myrt here just ran across this one, and thought her DearREADERS would get a kick out of it.

We were all beginners once.

Happy family tree climbing!

DearMYRTLE,
Your friend in genealogy.
