SNGF - 16 Great Great Grandparents

From Randy Seaver Genea-Musings.
Ah, Genea-folks, it’s Saturday Night again – are you ready for more Genealogy Fun?
Your mission tonight, should you decide to accept it, is to:
1)  List your 16 great-great-grandparents with their birth, death and marriage data (dates and places).  [Hint - you might use an Ancestral Name List from your software for this.]
2)  Determine the countries (or states) that these ancestors lived in at their birth and at their death.
3)  For extra credit, go make a “Heritage Pie” chart for the country of origin (birth place) for these 16 ancestors. [Hint: you could use the  chart generator from Kid Zone for this.] [Note: Thank you to Sheri Fenley for the "Heritage Pie" chart idea.]
  1. Tell us about it in your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or in a post on Facebook or google+.

I should really follow now with my husband's great great grandparents.


  1. I love that you have one born 'at sea'. I have such respect for our ancestral women who not only cared for children on their way to the 'new world' (in my case, Canada) but who also gave birth to them en route.

  2. Sarah was the second child in her family. Unfortunately, her elder Harriet died on the voyage to Australia.

  3. I like the birth and death place statistics. I haven't written about my great greats but I had a quick look just for my stats.

    4 born Scotland
    3 unknown
    1 born South Australia
    4 born Victoria
    2 born Cornwall
    1 born Kent
    1 born Germany

    4 died Scotland
    6 died South Australia
    2 died United Kingdom
    4 died Victoria

  4. It was a fun exercise. As I eventually write posts about each of them I will link from this blog.

  5. Thanks to share this information.I have visited your great post.
