Keith I bet if you call them again and talk about something else (I dunno, the next big KATG event) then end the convo with "Oh yeah, Mom, what were your sisters and brothers names again? I need to thank the family at the end of the show," that they will be UN-tricked and tell you.

also, you brought that on yourself watching a movie with Blake Lively

I've been thinking maybe Keith's parents know just as much as he does and they are just trying to play dumb so Keith can just give up in frustration. I call it the Malley gambit.

I know nothing about my fathers side of the family and the stuff I know about my mothers side I could probably do without. I come from Jamaican heritage a relatively small island. So it's not unusual for other Jamaicans to ask you your surname and what part of the island you are from. It's surprising how often people are familiar with each others family. I was once talking with my best friend's mother and she said that her husband was very familiar with the area my family is from. She asked for my mothers last name I told her Hall her eyes widened and she said; "oh boy... I've heard him say, the only good Hall is that one" and gesture towards the main hallway in the house. Knowing the little that I do all I could do was laugh. I have to admit I was sort of impressed at the level of fuckary that half of my family was able to achieve.

Family Tree

This may have already been written, but Keith can pretty easily create his family tree by only knowing his parents last names and what part of the country they were from. Sign up for Ancestry and just do one month with the lowest priced package. He doesn't need to do the spit kit. The spit kit DNA mostly tells you what region of the world your ancesters were from. It does though allow you to meet second or third cousins who are on there. The real tree information is done by the software over the course of weeks as it keeps matching government documents to the names, places, and birthdates you eventually add.

It is just clicking yes or no to the items found and the tree basically builds itself. I did it all through the phone app when I had downtime. It takes a little getting used to but is a bit addicting for awhile and you get all the names and dates and the tree without knowing much of anything. Each document found tells you enough to make the correct links. It is still possible to make mistakes here and there, but you begin to find distant relatives who you can also share their trees with you to compare. I want to say all that is about $30 for the one month.
