For example, every person in NC, TN, and VA has "an Indian princess" somewhere in their family tree.

There is an article in tomorrow's LA Times about Geni.com about which I've blogged before. It's an interesting article, and captures some of the fascination people like myself have with their genealogy. A user sums up a lot though, when, regarding the family oral history, he says, "But you never know what's chatter and what's true."

there is an interesting article on "how genealogy is bunk" in last month's smithsonian magazine.
