    A transformative moment appeared in Korean history when a new law demanding the performance of ancestor rituals unexpectedly caused the proliferation of lineage books. Over time, that law faded but the lineage records took on unexpected importance and longevity. After exploring circumstances surrounding both that law and the collection on ancestral names, the paper extends those areas into classroom discussion of, for example, unenforceable laws and the importance of, and keeping track of family in countries beyond Korea.
