description <p>Did you ever think a cousin who<br />was "once removed" was someone<br />that had been forcibly evicted from<br />the family at some point? Have you<br />always thought that a "barr." was something<br />Davey Crockett killed? That<br />"Brother's Keeper" was part of a snappy<br />retort that got Cain in trouble with<br />God? That a "chattel" was some kind of<br />informal discussion group? When your<br />mother told you that your great-grandfather<br />had received a Crown grant, did<br />you think that meant some country had<br />invited him to be king?<br />Fear not! Help is here!</p>
