I added a link to the top bar with my AncestryDNA results. I really enjoy learning about other people's results, so I thought this was an easy way for people to find mine if they are interested. I'm excited to see what new results/data are going to be released after the first of the year.
These next few weeks are going to be very busy for me. I am moving and have started the seeming insurmountable task of packing...
Here is a rundown of what I discovered over the last few days:
- A quite distant branch of my family was kidnapped by the British during the American Revolution and the whole family was held hostage in Canada for a period of time!
- Another distant relative in the same branch has a middle name of Elmo!
- I have been working on a project to display my family tree. While doing this I determined that I have 10 branches that I have traced back further than 7 generations.
- In comparison, my shortest branch goes back 3 generations.
- I re-discovered the Green Hills Pioneers website (one of the first places I started researching!). It's a great resource if you have lines that trace back to North-Western Missouri.
