The Lighter Side / Re: How Do They Do It In The U.S.

Tracing back your family tree can only go so far. Quite frankly, anyone who claims to have traced back to Adam and Eve or Jesus has been using inaccurate/incorrect information. This thread just shows why information submitted to the LDS should be taken with a handful of salt.


Make that two handfulls, please.

As an American I can tell you how I do it in the US.  I read books. I visit libraries.  I search for facts.  I document sources.  I do NOT research *exclusively* on  I *do* utilize the internet and search abroad for much the same - books, vital statistics, parish libraries, universities etc. I post querys to message boards,  mailing lists and search for contacts who may have the information I'm looking for outside of the US and inside of the US.  It's fun. I can appreciate those on-line family trees that are extensively sourced and cited.  One day maybe I will have a tree that is just blooming fantastic. (I don't hold out and  hope for blue blood though.)

The question was a fair one.  I hope that my American "root digging techniques" have  helped.

How many Roots Chat members have an ancestor who was from or traveled to Louisiana?
