I received the following article written by the author of a new book called Annie's Ghosts. The article is an interesting look into the mind of a non-genealogist.
What do you think about his interaction with the genealogist he looks to for help? What do you think about his reluctance to post his family tree due to it's "broken branches?" What advice would you give someone in his shoes?

I am not a genealogist. I am a storyteller.
