Ancestor Count Reviewed

Almost every day I devote some time to my genealogy, mostly adding ancestors to my family tree and trying to find more information on particular ancestors. There’re lot of win goose chases involved in this process but usually it yields interesting information. In March 2019 I had 17,481 ancestors on my family tree. Today, March 1, 2022, I have 23,941 ancestors on my family tree (Janet’s Family Tree). An increase of over 6,000 ancestors. Mind boggling I would say, and fun in the process. Ancestors stretching back to the 14th century. Knights and nobles and ordinary folk through the ages. Most of these people located in New England and their forebears came from the British Isles.

According to Ancestry.com my ethnicity as determined from my DNA is as follows:

England and NW Europe. 65%

Scotland. 15%

Sweden & Denmark. 9%

Wales. 5%

Ireland. 5%

Norway 1%
