I am helping DSS fill out his mother's side of his family tree, for a school assignment, because she is being irregular about taking/returning his phone calls.  Just weird!

That would be weird! How far back do you have to go? XH Just has one brother, but I have no idea how many aunts or uncles there are, just that ex-MIL does her best to keep ex-FIL cut off from his side, and she considers her family all losers.

Ahhh, it's not as bad without the aunts and uncles. that could get pretty out of hand! Still, I don't know beyond my kids' great grandparents on my dad's side (they're still alive, so it'd just be a phone call to ask their parent's names) Did you guys get it finished?
