    Hey, skeptic, if we just get back to the 1500's correctly, that's probably all we can do. Leave royal lines, Adam and Eve, and LUCY--and the pedigrees of our favorite pets, alone for now! The Lord will help us in his own proper time.

    I wonder, has anyone done the genealogy work for LUCY.

    Once you start doing one ancestor at a time, things begin to snowball. It's exciting. As a convert, with lineage to war-torn eastern Europe, I was very frustrated at the fact that Hitler's stormtroupers destroyed the church records on my mother's side. I guess it will take the Millenium for those people to come forth and proclaim their existence again.

    I appreciate your article on "Focusing on one ancestor at a time". I also find it helpful to research other possible family members that can validate information on the "one" and give more clues as you research. It is so fun!
