Aaron: Do you think you can help me trace my genealogy?
Corrie: Sure, I can try. We can get started by talking to your parents and grandparents. Oral interviews will give us some names of your relatives.
Aaron: I’ve already talked to them and I grew up hearing stories about my lineage on both sides of my family.
Corrie: That’s great. If you know some of the people you’re descended from, we can start by looking at public records and historical records from the area. You’re from Tennessee, right?
Aaron: That’s right. There are a lot of people in Tennessee with my last name, though.
Corrie: Well, we can triangulate the information we get to zero in on your ancestors.
Aaron: What if I want proof positive that I’m related to someone?
Corrie: Then you can have a genetic analysis done. A DNA test is generally accepted proof.
Aaron: Good, it’s about time someone in my family established the blood connections.
Corrie: Blood connections to whom?
Aaron: Elvis, of course.
Corrie: Elvis?! You think you’re related to Elvis?
Aaron: His last name was Presley; my last name is Presley. My first name is Aaron; his middle name was Aaron. It can’t be a coincidence, especially considering my talent.
Aaron: Sure, listen: “Well, it's one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, now go, cat, go!”
Corrie: I consider that counterevidence!
