I worked on genealogy today. . . . . .

I LOVE genealogy research.  Today, as I have done before, I went to One World Tree and inserted family member names into their database to look for links to famous relatives.  There were the usual famous sorts of 2nd cousins, 3rd cousins, 4th and so on, removed twice and more but I came up with a really cool one.  Whether it's accurate or not I don't know but I believe my 18th great grandfather was Geoffrey Chaucer.  Isn't that interesting?  I'm also in some way or another related to presidents and their wives (like so many of you), Louisa May Alcott and many others.  My favorite relation is "Uncle Edward Winslow" of Mayflower fame (this one is proven).  Not my direct line but a relation nonetheless.  I think that's why I enjoyed designing "Mayflower Landing" so much.  So what's next. . . . .The Canterbury Tales??  lol. . . . . . .

  1. I do a lot of geneology myself. I have probaly 1000+ names in my Family Tree Maker Program. I'm related to Elvis, Larry Mize (PGA golfer) Johnny Mize (Hall of Fame 1st Baseman) and many other wonderful people =) I love finding someone new...it's a wonderful feeling.
