A Living Family Tree-Starting Today! You know what a regular family tree is. A fact sheet that goes back until your roots disappear or they have been eaten by a wild pig. They're great to read to see if knighthood or dukedom is in your blood-or if a horse thief hangs from a stout branch! But what if you could create a new, growing tree that started right now, expanded for 100 or 1000 years, and drew every one of your living relatives-plus those yet to live-into a warm, tightly-bound clan? You can. You have almost every tool at hand because of the extraordinary electronic revolution we are experiencing. It's the 21st century, the miracle era of easy and inexpensive digital preservation. Time to get three-dimensional! Include the old-fashioned family tree but why not start collecting the actual words, voices, and actions (almost the souls) of every mem-ber of your living family through sound, jpgs, podcasts, videos, and digital writing? Most important, almost everything can be stored at a family website, to be instantly enjoyed by your cousin cross country or your great-grandson's daughter 60 or 260 years from now, after she's born and is looking back for inspiration or to see what her ancestors (that's you!) did and thought. That's about as close to magic as we can get-and you (or somebody in your present family) can make it happen! This book gives you step-by-step, how-to details, written by a straightforward, funny non-techie! "This book is a must read for anyone interested in preserving their personal history for future generations."

His family tree includes one knight (Sir Lancelot) and seven knaves. In part, he created the "living family tree" concept to help his kin grow better branches. Why else?
