It is so easy to go down the rabbit hole as I'm trying to fill in information for these lists. When I saw that I still didn't know the name of Jeffrey Gaunt's mother, I spent quite some time trying to find it tonight before I decided I just needed to post what I had.

Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
