The Twelve Days of Christmas for Genealogists

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
A conference in Milwaukee

On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Two easy names
And a conference in Milwaukee

On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Three marked graves
Two easy names
And a conference in Milwaukee

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Four sourced trees
Three marked graves
Two easy names
And a conference in Milwaukee

On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Five probate files
Four sourced trees
Three marked graves
Two easy names
And a conference in Milwaukee

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Six peeps a-spitting
Five probate files
Four sourced trees
Three marked graves
Two easy names
And a conference in Milwaukee

On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me

Seven pics a-scanning
Six peeps a-spitting
Five probate files
Four sourced trees
Three marked graves
Two easy names
And a conference in Milwaukee

On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Eight rolls a-cranking
Seven pics a-scanning
Six peeps a-spitting
Five probate files
Four sourced trees
Three marked graves
Two easy names
And a conference in Milwaukee

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Nine friends indexing
Eight rolls a-cranking
Seven pics a-scanning
Six peeps a-spitting
Five probate files
Four sourced trees
Three marked graves
Two easy names
And a conference in Milwaukee

On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Ten proofs a-writing
Nine friends indexing
Eight rolls a-cranking
Seven pics a-scanning
Six peeps a-spitting
Five probate files
Four sourced trees
Three marked graves
Two easy names
And a conference in Milwaukee

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Eleven listers fighting
Ten proofs a-writing
Nine friends indexing
Eight rolls a-cranking
Seven pics a-scanning
Six peeps a-spitting
Five probate files
Four sourced trees
Three marked graves
Two easy names
And a conference in Milwaukee

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Twelve psychics guessing
Eleven listers fighting
Ten proofs a-writing
Nine friends indexing
Eight rolls a-cranking
Seven pics a-scanning
Six peeps a-spitting
Five probate files
Four sourced trees
Three marked graves
Two easy names
And a conference in Milwaukee

Awww, come on! Subzero temperatures are good for your complexion. I’m actually 109 years old…it’s the cold that keeps me looking young.
