Late last night I reached a small but significant milestone in my family tree research: I now know the names of my sixteen great-great-grandparents! Or so I believe – I just need to wait for a couple of certificates to arrive from the GRO to prove my theories.
So, who do I think I am? Well, at this stage it appears that my blood is:
- 50.0% English
- 37.5% Scottish
- 12.5% Irish
Those sixteen ancestors were born between 1829 and 1860.
I haven’t yet updated my online family tree, but will do so later today.
I suspect that this marks the end of the "easy bit" of my research, and doubt that I’ll ever succeed in discovering the names of all of my 32 great-great-great-grandparents. Still, you never know…
