Hey there, Genea-Nauts -- It's Saturday Night, and time for more Genealogy Fun!!
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:
1) Write a poem about "Where I'm From" using the template found at the website http://www.swva.net/fred1st/wif.htm
2) Tell us about it in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this blog post, or in a Google Plus or Facebook note.
Thank you to Kevin Huigens of the Family History Nuggets blog for the SNGF suggestion!
Well, it's no longer Saturday night, but I'm throwing in my contribution anyway.
Where I'm from.
Ships across the sea
Brought ancestors to this land
Natives fight and die
We displace them on their lands
Now go west, young man
Horse-drawn plows break sod
Fell the trees, plant crops, build towns
How the west was won
Wars engulf the world
Many men do not return
My grandpa came back
Someone has to make it work
That is where I'm from.
