Gary Smith favored us with:
Actually, there are many Levites that have established their genealogies
without a patriarchal blessing. Jews today are still rather diligent in
ensuring their descendancy.
I don't believe this. To trace a genealogy requires documentary evidence: wills, land deeds, church records, vital records, etc. Needless to say, there is no such evidence that goes all the way back to the time of Christ, much less the days of Levi, son of Jacob. At best a Jew might have a family tradition about what tribe he is from, and family traditions are often wrong and need to be verified by the documentary evidence.

===========================================
At present, the Book of Mormon is studied in our Sunday
School and seminary classes every fourth year. This
four-year pattern, however, must not be followed by
Church members in their personal and family study. We
need to read daily from the pages of the book that will get
a man "nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by
any other book." (Ezra Taft Benson, October 1988)
