By Faith Alone

My Family's Epic History

Bill Griffeth

Bill Griffeth, author of the best-selling memoir The Stranger in My Genes, shares new information on the religious rebels in his Griffeth line. To Pilgrims, puritans, and even a Salem witch, he adds Quakers and early members of the Latter-day Saints church—all who left their homes to follow their faith.

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 the 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.
