This is why I love genetic genealogy. I’m entranced by the idea of a project for descendants of Wilford Woodruff. I wonder how many ancestor projects exist, as opposed to surname and geographical projects.

I’d go over tips and steps that you can use, especially with regard to DNA information. I’ll include the story of how I found my dad’s birth-parents. Share story of finding my dad’s birth parents. If you know how to google, you can do family history…
Are humans self-domesticating? I’m in love with that idea. I had no idea it’s in vogue. “Since the elites were in a very real sense raising peasants, just as peasants raised cows, there must have been a tendency for them to cull individuals who were more aggressive than average, which over time would have changed the frequencies of those alleles that induced such aggressiveness.”
This is one of the reasons I love reading hbd chick’s blog. This is an extract from St. Augustine on outbreeding, ““To the patriarchs of antiquity, it was a matter of religious duty to ensure that the bonds of kinship should not gradually become so weakened by the succession of the generations that they ceased to be bonds of kinship at all. And so they sought to reinforce such bonds by means of the marriage tie before kinship became too remote, thereby calling kinship back, so to speak, as it fled.”
The question is whether I should order it now or wait to see if it comes out in trade paperback.
