This is the site that I was talking about.
I guess some people like the site ... I for one do.
Other people question the site ....
But, like any source, it's "secondary."
It's always good to get a "second opinion" which was I was trying to do in
the late winter of 2007 on this guy's take on Obama & St. Mary's County
before intelligent discussion was blown out of the water by an attack on
Obama & his supposed Muslim faith.
Thanks, Jackie, for mentioning the site.
Non-political discussion is the only way we can arrive at better
"genealogical truth" about political figures.
