Depends on the branch. My maternal grandmother was an orphan from Mississippi in a town where the courthouse burned..so one out of four is not traceable right there…..I have some stubborn cases, but have had big breakthroughs… Some claim they can take my ancestry back to Roman Senators, but I am into getting all the ones in America lined up with the voyage here from Europe….big job. More peeps involved with each generation back…It is an eternal game of reverse solitaire until you get to Adam and Eve.

I wonder about my ancestors. Were they people I would have been proud of? Does it matter? I kind of regret not asking my grandparents, aunts, and uncles about their lives. There are some neat rumors about my family that I would like to validate.

Well, you can, & we all have the good and the bad. It is so much fun because it is a linear history lesson..of course the are twice as many as you go back, so it gets harder to picture where they all are and what they did in the Middle ages..You get a week free on Ancestry because they know you will not be able to quit..I dare you to try…
