      THE TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR NAMES

      (1) Thou shalt name your male children: James, John, Joseph, Josiah, Abel,
      Richard, Thomas, William

      (2) Thou shalt name your female children: Elizabeth, Mary, Martha, Maria,
      Sarah, Ida, Virginia, May

      (3) Thou shalt leave NO trace of your female children.

      (4) Thou shalt, after naming your children from the above lists, call them by
      strange nicknames such as: Ike, Eli, Polly, Dolly, Sukey.---making them
      difficult to trace.

      (5) Thou shalt NOT use any middle names on any legal documents or census
      reports, and only where necessary, you may use only initials on legal
      documents.

      (6) Thou shalt learn to sign all documents illegibly so that your surname can
      be spelled, or misspelled, in various ways:  Hicks, Hicks, Hix, Hixe, Hucks,
      Kicks
       
      (7) Thou shalt, after no more then 3 generations, make sure that all family
      records are lost, misplaced, burned in a court house fire, or buried so that
      NO future trace of them can be found.

      (8) Thou shalt propagate misleading legends, rumors, & vague innuendo
      regarding your place origination

      (A) you may have come from : England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales....or Iran.
      (B) you may have American Indian ancestry of the______tribe......
      (C) You may have descended from one of three brothers that came over
      from______

      (9) Thou shalt leave NO cemetery records, or headstones with legible names.

      (10) Thou shalt leave NO family Bible with records of birth, marriages, or
      deaths.

      (11) Thou shalt ALWAYS flip thy name around. If born James Albert, thou must
      make all the rest of thy records in the names of Albert, AJ, JA, AL, Bert,
      Bart, or Alfred.

      (12) Thou must also flip thy parent's names when making reference to them,
      although "Unknown" or a blank line is an acceptable alternative.

      And my own personal addition:

      Thou shalt name at least 5 generations of males, and dozens of their cousins
      with identical names in order to totally confuse researchers.

      And don't forget to change you surname all together.  'Now I dare them to
      find me.'
