Musical Genealogy

For those of you who have read this blog (or know me personally), you may have noticed that I enjoy history and genealogy.  I also like reading the Bible and learning about Jesus.  And I also like music.

The other night, I stumbled upon what I think might have been one of only two genealogy songs I have ever heard.  It's a Christmas song about the genealogy of Jesus.  For those of you who have read the Bible, you may have noticed the somewhat dry passage found in Matthew 1:2-16.  Andrew Peterson sings a wonderful folk song using a good portion of this very text and turned it into a surprisingly good tune (with some very creative rhymes to boot).

The song is called "Matthew's Begats" and can be seen HERE.  Check it out!

Thanks for the tip, Nate...I just listened to the song and enjoyed it thoroughly. Seems to me that one of the cool things about the web is the ability to share sites.

Interesting! What is the other genealogy song about?

Thanks Nate for posting this song. It was great and everyone I showed really enjoyed it.

I also like your genealogy photos and information about your ancestors. I'm obsessed about finding information about my family and have been doing genealogy for over 30 years.

Everyone has a story and I enjoy hearing them all! When a photo is included it is the icing on the cake. Thanks for sharing.
