[quote=""Cayuga1561""]Hi Daniel,

Genealogy can be very frustrating. If you can trace your roots into the royal lines, it gets much easier. Among the common folk, records were rare or non-existent. I have used the Mormon genealogy archives to help compile my family tree to include over 10,000 individuals. Some of my lines are easily traceable to 750 B.C. As you say, some data is questionable that's generally posted out there. You have to evaluate the source as well as the data most of the time.[/quote]

Like nearly everyone of British descent, I can trace my line to Edward III, and from then back to antiquity. But for the non-royal lines (most of them) the furthest back I can go is 1275,

I am fortunate to be close enough to do a day trip to Salt Lake City whenever I want, but as more and more of the LDS records are coming online, trips are becoming less necessary.

Genealogy. Phooey. I can't get further back than Richard Warren on my Mom's side. Can't even get that far back on Dad's.

Welcome to the forum, James. Your book looks great!
