After all, Jesus brought the sword. He would have decapitated these mofos in the village square, like the Saudis do. Long live the King of Peace...

or something.

All of us truebloods can. Mongrols like you? probably not.

The oldest person I see is this fellow:

Henry BURT, born 1595, Harberton, Devonshire, England; died 30 Apr 1662, Springfield, Ma.
Woah! That's awesome W*GS! After my grandparents passed, they told me to carry on the geneaology tradition for our family. I've been working on a family history book with stories, photos, geneaology records, etc. -- and it's quite crazy. I really enjoy the stuff. Most people in my family think it is a waste of time.

I'm obsessed with ancestral crap and actually would like to do a DNA test sometime to find more information about haplogroups, but I hear it is pretty expensive. It's cool that your mom does that stuff. Maybe one day you will be the one in charge of all the records and research. Super cool!

As I said, I think it would be a great deterrent. Liberals, more than anyone, however, would rush forward to shriek bloody murder about it.
And this is a good thing? How about a society that is based strictly upon the Old Testament? Specifically, my old favorite, Leviticus.

I started into some of that stuff. The LDS have tons of info in the Denver Library. I discovered that my paternal line springs from the same clan as Eric the Red and Lief Ericson, who of course were driven from Norway for being cattle thieves. But other than that...

The reason I gave up on it was because of the numbers game. Go back 7 generations and you're talking about 128 direct ancestors. And that's just the great, great, great, etc grandparents.

Nice!

I guess the coolest thing I've found is documents going back into the 1700s where we had people leave Germany to Kleinliebental (outside Odessa, Ukraine) and then in on their way to America in the early 1800s. I look at pictures of the village my family left in the Ukraine and look at where they settled in America and it's no surprise. Flatlands, prairies. All the damn same. It's a German-Russian thing I guess.
