Tangled Webs ~ A Poem
Oh, what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive.
So said Sir Walter Scott
And I disagree with him not.
But as every genealogist knows,
Our philosophy a different way goes:
Oh what tangled webs we unweave,
As we struggle to perceive,
The tangled family ties
Wherein our obsession lies.
