I just wanted to say this is the best description I have read of the reason
to back up your paper trail wil DNA research yet.
Of course, it is everyone's call whether they want to verify their
documentation research this way. This is the downside, if you do
can build paper trails in the air, which may be very gratifying to you, but
may also be ultimately shown not to be who you really are. They are
creative fiction which can stand modern-day comparison with some of the
descent trees in Burke's Peerage in the 19th century before the advent of
researchers like John Horace Round.
