I’ve started walking every morning. Today, I happened to pass this tree and thought it was a poignant lesson in genealogy. This tree shows the results of focusing our research exclusively on our direct ancestors and ignoring collateral lines. Doing so might fill in a little green around the trunk, but the leaves don’t reach as high as they otherwise could, and it sure doesn’t make for a very complete picture.
