Bob's daughter (Jeanette Zoeckler) has been researching her mom's side of the family. See the Jeanette Zoeckler Family History Index Page to check out her Lewis and Frost histories.
Two other topics are addressed in Bob's website:
Recent developments in DNA mapping. Especially in the Y chormosome, which is passed on from fathers to sons back to the very beginning, to Y-chromosome Adam. And also the Mitochondria, which is passed from mothers to daughters, also from the very beginning, our Mitochondrial Eve. You can map out the routes these two ancestors took to get from where it started, to where we are now. I realize it's only two lines out of thousands of ancestors, but it's something we couldn't do until a few years ago.
