  24. I could have answered this prompt with a simple, “Two and a half generations.” Of course, that raises the question of how you can have half of a generation. Hopefully, my blog makes that clear.

  30. Personally, I can’t go very far back in my family tree. A family member did a heritage search several years ago and it was surprising to learn of my grandmother’s grandmother. There’s value to knowing your heritage and the traditions that passed down as I share in this writing

  38. Till today I felt blessed to know my family tree going back to 14 generations – after taking up this prompt I felt that there is much more that I have to do than being just proud. It is interesting that this prompt has triggered an interest in me to dig deeper into my own strengths – it is a spiritual quest.

  39. How far back in your family tree can you go?
    My family tree goes back to mythical beings through my mother’s line. She was a bit mythical in her own right, but I guess I am too. Aren’t we all? The story is long with many plot twists through that leaky tub that landed at Plymouth Rock and on to the Magna Carta and farther still to Hastings, Saint Margaret, and Kenneth McAlpine. There are knights and knaves, kings and peasants, ladies and some others. The west Irish side waved farewell to St Brendan (the Navigator) as he sailed away and later waved to Ireland, as they sailed away, centuries later. There are Viking Sea Kings that never existed. If you squint, hold your mouth a little crooked and are particularly gullible, look past Charlemagne and you can get back to Mary Magdeline in a leap of faith. Don’t count on it.
    My dad’s side is a little more earthy and Earthly, at least what we know about it. It is mostly Germanic in varying degrees and sort of “wham bam thank you ma’am” rather than princes and saints. Just about every army in Europe marched or paraded through the family’s yard and stopped off for a visit. More recently they were manor workers for the Prussian Junkers but skilled enough to move around from one manor to another, which makes tracing them even more difficult than just the language barrier.
    I have been engaged in this paper chase toe many years. The one thing that stands out is that they were dissenters on both sides, and most of that had to do with religion. There wasn’t a religious quarrel that they were slow to wade into. They were never burned as heretics as far as I know because they were fast and escaped or migrated when things got too hot. Name a religious dissenter group and they were probably part of it. The Huguenots fled France to Germany and then Holland and then New York (that’s us). The English joined the Pilgrims in Holland and then sailed to Plymouth Rock (us, too). Then they became “heretics” and followed Anne Hutchinson into Rhode Island (ditto). The Lutherans refused to conform to the German Reformed Church and sailed to America and started over (us, yet again). I guess they were dissenters and survivors.
