Maybe you’ve grown up hearing “the legend,” or maybe it’s a family tale you’ve just heard for the first time. The story sounds like a novel, but the person who told it wouldn’t lie, right? Learn how to use the clues in a family anecdote to research its accuracy, and decide how to include it in your family history.
