    After joining I was advised to wait 6 months before joining an appendant body to let the lessons of the three degrees sink in a bit. I took the advise and am glad I did. This allowed me to better understand the meanings of the York Rite and Scottish Rite degrees.

    It has actually been about that long; I was raised to MM in July, and will get the York Rite degrees in a month or two.

    Yes, ive done geneology and back to 1791 i am the only mason on both sides of my family. I am proud of it but feel behind the curve trying to learn everything.

    I would not be so sure. I know of brothers who were initiated but their family did not know...

    I will continue my research of course... though my smith side almost all the information has been lost to time due to a falling out with greatgrandfather and his father.
