My mother found this excellent post debunking commonly believed myths about genealogy. I wanted to share it with you.
From “Our name was changed at Ellis Island” to “We have an Indian princess among our ancestors,” here are a dozen myths that many searchers have heard about their ancestors. Are they true? Well, no, but–and this is a big BUT–often there is a kernel of truth in the story. Thank you, Dick Eastman, for this excellent post!
