I usually do one line of my mother's side, and once my road block was cleared of who my 3rd great grandfather's father was, that arrived in Canada via New York and Albany in August 1785, the line was very well documented in Clan and Peer books. Other lines are obscured with the lack of records when they arrived, born, married, lived and died all before regular census records. So the quilt has many holes.

I’m amazed at how many Americans don’t know their own family heritage any further back than their grandparents. For many years, I was one of them. I would casually tell people, “My family never really talked much about our family tree, because we were afraid we’d find horse thieves hanging from the branches.” But, bad or good, I always wondered about my roots.
