What Have We Learned?

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.

      True. Don’t even get mii started on deh pedophiles (4 year old girls having babies) and the overly fertile post-menopawzal womiin giving birth into their nineties!!! I came across wun guy born in 1646 hoo died in 2003. I think I would have noticed on the news if a 357 year old man died. 🙄
