One of my hobbies for a long time has been delving into my family tree and I've recently made a possible breakthrough regarding my Great Grandmother (Father-Grandfather-Great Grandmother) Sarah Vermilyea. The big question is who is her mother. At the present I think it's Hannah Preston, but my proof is incredibly sketchy and there are a few conflicting sources. I am 99% certain that Sarah (Vermilyea) Mainprize was born on Apr 8, 1849 based on the 1901 census of Hastings County All the sources that suggest Hannah is her mother have the birth date wrong. Does anyone have info on Sarah Vermilyea?

I've designed a demo module for Neverwinter Nights demonstrating the A* ("A Star") algorithm used for pathfinding. The demo uses the Memetic Toolkit which is a powerful set of scripts used to simulate creature AI. The A* algorithm is remarkably efficient, and the NPCs are quickly able to determine the best (shortest) path to their next destination. The NPCs are able to traverse multiple areas and follow very complex paths without overly taxing CPU resources.
