    AMAZING. IT FOUND MY FAMILY TREE TO 1120!

    I loved the book! Well, It helps a ton! when I read it, I couldn't put it down, but at the same time, i wanted to put it down really bad so I could start! Finally, I had a long family tree, and found my long lost sister. She was in an orphanage and I too, but i was adopted right away because I was younger.
