History and genealogy are interconnected. History is defined as the acquisition of knowledge by inquiry. Genealogy is the study of families and the tracing of family history and lineage using historical records, oral traditions handed down from generation to generation, and other methods of tracing that history. The blogs housed in this category focus on the topics of history and genealogy.

Records supporting this parentage are cited along with the suggestion that DNA be used to solve this “mystery”.
