The Things We’ve Handed Down


This is a Great song by Marc Cohn from his LIVE 04-05 Album.  You can catch the song and video on YouTube.

Other songs mentioned by EOGN readers as having a genealogy connection are The Family Tree (video) (by Venice), and Family Hands (lyrics) (by Mary Chapin Carpenter).  Back in 2007,  Genea-Musings posted a list. And, I stumbled across, Let the Mystery Be (video) (Iris DeMent) ...

What songs do you associate with genealogy and family research?




Editor’s Note: Thanks to Dick Eastman and his readers for sharing.
