Kickin' it with Neil D. Thompson, Charles M. Hansen and Cozy Cole

In the Fall 1981 issue of The Genealogist, Dr. Thompson and Col. Hansen co-authored "A Medieval Heritage: The Ancestry of Charles II, King of England," which would continue to be published as a serial for thirty-one more years until Fall 2012. More than five generations are traced and epically researched. The Easter-egg citations alone are worth a read because you are able to see new sources that are of interest (even if not for your own genealogy). It is a dense read, will take time, and should be studied by any genealogist to see the beauty of a well documented lineage.

Couple that with Cozy Cole. I am partial to drummer/percussionists because my husband is one (trained in marimba and a few by Jim Chapin), my brother is one (Norwegian Death Metal and Visual Kei) and my cousin is one (my grandmother's brother's kid is Matt Chamberlain).

Neil D. Thompson and Charles M. Hansen, A Medieval Heritage: The Ancestry of Charles II, King of England and The Genealogist 2.2-26.2 and a wonderful review by Gary Boyd Roberts in 28.1.
