Family trees are never finished. In 2008, avid amateur genealogist Bill Griffeth published By Faith Alone, a history of his ancestors and the diverse faith traditions they brought with them to the American continent: Catholic, Anglican, Congregationalist, Presbyterian, and Methodist, just to name a few. But his journey of discovery continued. With this second edition, Griffeth adds ancestors who were Quakers and early members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Ultimately, By Faith Alone is not the story of a family. It is the story of a country and the great motivator that created it: faith.
