Margaret and Her Children 2011 (December)
"Digging for lost ancestors is far more than simply collecting the names of your ascendants...You don't dig merely to accumulate a lot of dry bones, as it were; or to change the metaphor, you simply cannot back-trail your progenitors without becoming interested in the times in which they lived and in the various phases of their lives and activities." (Searching for Your Ancestors, Gilbert H. Doane & James B. Bell.)
