Genealogy is the most wonderful of pastimes. I love it, and you should, too. There are endless reasons why. Genealogy is one of the fastest growing hobbies in the western world, as more and more people discover the exhilarating and slightly addictive nature of ancestor hunting. It’s like an ongoing mystery with clues you have to discover and then put together to come to conclusions about your family’s past. The mystery never ends, because there is no end to the amount of time you can potentially go back in history with your family research. Yet, the more you can discover, the more complete picture of your family you can put together. It’s insanely rewarding, and the more you do it, the more you will want to do it. That’s a given.

    AF-542: The Twenty-First Amendment: The Constitutional Amendments

    AF-542: The Twenty-First Amendment: The Constitutional Amendments

    The 21st Amendment repealed the 18th Amendment. The 18th Amendment was adopted in 1919 and made manufacturing, transporting, and selling alcohol illegally at the federal level. The amendment proved unenforceable, and even increased crime in the United States, so it was repealed by the 21st Amendment in 1933. This is the reason why.

Helpful but leaves groups out

I appreciate the short length and the info. Please include African American genealogy (of Americans of African descent). And also, please include how to explore if one has slave-owners in their ancestry. I could not find anything on either topic on this show so far. Thanks for your work.

Jewish Genealogy Missing

Doesn’t seem to address Jewish genealogy; assuming all families went to a church.
