My theory offers a simple explanation of problems
all genealogists encounter. My husband (a VERY non-genealogist) thinks
this theory would save a great deal of time and effort, and
would make genealogy more interesting to read. (I am NOT
responsible for his opinions!) Here is an example:
My ancestor, Daniel Lovet, was reportedly born 15 May 1769, possibly enroute
to this planet, although perhaps it was his parents who were
beamed down from the spaceship (this part isn't real clear yet).
His parents either remained aboard, or were beamed back aboard, for no
earthly record has been found of them.
At any rate, after Daniel's marriage to Mary James on 11 Sep 1794 in Allegeny Co, MD, he spent the remainder of his
lifetime on this planet. Their oldest son, John, married Anna Price
(1821, OH) and had three sons by 1827. Since no other record of
Anna's birth, life or death can be found, it is obvious that not
only was she beamed down from a spaceship, but her mission was
completed sometime in 1827 and she was therefore beamed back aboard.
John, on the other hand, spent his entire lifetime on this planet.
It is not certain if more than one spaceship is involved
in this process.
Of course, we can also keep digging through those musty old records....
