I’ve been playing with the ancestry program for 3 months now, and I know you are dieing to hear what I have learned. Well, let me tell you, clicking on those little green leaves has been a real eye-opener. Here are some of the startling facts that have come to light.
- I come from a long line of zombies. 😯 Scary but true!! How else to describe all the people I found who married and had children years after they died?
- Time travel was very popular in the 16th and 17th centuries. Seriously! I came across several couples who lived and died in the 1800s that had children in the 1600s. I had no idea they had the technology. I wonder why no one is doing this now?
- Massachusetts was settled for over 20 years before the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620. Yes, it was!!! I have ancesters who were born in Massachusetts in the 1590s, and the first 2 decades of the 1600s. *nods head vigorously* All those history books need to be rewritten.
Seriously, I do wish that people would use a little common sense before they post their family trees.
