"If you are like me, you need a genealogy makeover. Better yet, a Genealogy Do-Over. Since I started my initial research, much has changed in the areas of genealogy research methodology and education. I now realize the need to collect facts and track them properly, including the use of source citations. I now understand the process of analyzing evidence and proving facts to reach a conclusion. In essence, I know a lot more about the "process" of genealogical research and I want to put it to use. The Genealogy Do-Over journey is constructed of 12 mileposts or journey markers that are laid out over one year. You can choose to pace yourself differently. You can even decide to drop some of the less important tasks and add your own. Do whatever it takes to ensure that you are on a firm footing to finding your ancestors"--Back cover.

One Million Steps

A Marine Platoon at War

Battalion 3/5 suffered the highest number of casualties in the war in Afghanistan. This is the story of one platoon in that distinguished battalion. Aware of U.S. plans to withdraw from the country, knowing their efforts were only a footprint in the sand, the fifty Marines of 3rd Platoon fought in Sangin, the most dangerous district in all of Afghanistan. So heavy were the casualties that the Secretary of Defense offered to pull the Marines out. Instead, they pushed forward. Each Marine in 3rd Platoon patrolled two and a half miles a day for six months--a total of one million steps--in search of a ghostlike enemy that struck without warning. Why did the Marines attack and attack, day after day? Every day brought a new skirmish. Each footfall might trigger an IED. Half the Marines in 3rd Platoon didn't make it intact to the end of the tour. One Million Steps is the story of the fifty brave men who faced these grim odds and refused to back down. Based on Bing West's embeds with 3rd Platoon, as well as on their handwritten log, this is a gripping grunt's-eye view of life on the front lines of America's longest war. Writing with a combat veteran's compassion for the fallen, West also offers a damning critique of the higher-ups who expected our warriors to act as nation-builders--and whose failed strategy put American lives at unnecessary risk. Each time a leader was struck down, another rose up to take his place. How does one man instill courage in another? What welded these men together as firmly as steel plates? This remarkable book is the story of warriors caught between a maddening, unrealistic strategy and their unswerving commitment to the fight. Fearsome, inspiring, and poignant in its telling, One Million Steps is sure to become a classic, a unique and enduring testament to the American warrior spirit. Praise for One Million Steps "West shows the reality of modern warfare in a way that is utterly gripping."--Max Boot, author of Invisible Armies "A gripping, boot-level account of Marines in Afghanistan during the bloody struggle with Taliban fighters."--Los Angeles Times "One Million Steps transcends combat narrative: It is an epic of contemporary small-unit combat."--Eliot A. Cohen, author of Supreme Command "A blistering assault on America's senior military leadership."--The Wall Street Journal "A heart-pounding portrayal . . . a compelling account of what these men endured."--The Washington Post "Stunning, sobering, and brilliantly written."--Newt Gingrich "One of the most intrepid military journalists, Bing West, delivers a heart-wrenching account of one platoon's fight."--Bill Bennett, host of Morning in America "Bing West has reconfirmed his standing as one of the most intrepid and insightful observers of America's wars. . . . One Million Steps reveals the essence of small-unit combat, the very soul of war."--The Weekly Standard "A searing read, but it is one that all Americans should undertake. We send our sons into battle, and few know what our warriors experience."--The Washington Times From the Hardcover edition.

Endogamy is the practice of marrying within the limits of a certain community, culture, clan, or tribe. In endogamous populations, everyone descends from the same gene pool. Jewish genealogy is difficult, and DNA testing among Jewish descendants can be difficult to interpret properly. This volume chronicles one man's quest for his ancestors using DNA testing. Learn how he selected family members to test and how the results enabled him to determine the probably families of his ancestors. These same principles can be applied to any endogamous population other than Ashkenazi Jews, including Acadians, Polynesians, and Low German Mennonites. People from Arab countries, small European villages, Newfoundland, and many island nations will also benefit from the methods shown here.
