This familyresearch is cheating!
It's cheating i tell you!
It feels like he just wants to be a descendant of Kunta Kinte.
1. He looks up his mother (Bertha) and doesnt care about his fathers history (Simon Haley)
2. Now he looks up Berthas mother (Cynthia) and doesnt care about her fathers history (Will Palmer)
3. So far so good, but now it's getting weird. He looks up Cynthias father (Tom) and doesnt care about Cynthias mothers history (Irene)
So now he changed from looking up mothers to fathers instead. Ok, lets move along.
4. Now he looks up Toms father (Chicken George) and doesnt care about Toms mothers history (Matilda)
5. This time he looks up Chicken Georges mother (Kizzy) and doesnt care about his fathers history (Tom Lea)
Hmm, back to mothers again now are we?
6. Then back to fathers (Kizzys father Kunta Kinte)
Now, if I would do some research on my family i would go from father to father to father..or mother to mother to mother. This is just bullcrap, Alex Haley wants do be a descendant of Kunta Kinte and that is why he research like this. Anyone could be a descendant of Kunta Kinte if he would research like this.
