Saturday Night Genealogy Fun – My Heritage Pie Chart!

Over at Genea-Musings, Randy Seaver started a tradition of ‘Saturday Night Genealogy Fun,’ and tonight’s challenge was to list my 16 great-great-grandparents along with birth and death information, marriage information where available, and – for the extra challenge – try to make up a pie chart showing their ethnicity or national origins. Since my family lines have been rolling around the United States since before its conception, I’ll just stick with the state they were born in, which is still mainly luck, since they were a very migratory lot.

As I’ve always known, my mother’s heritage is northern and my father’s is southern, but if I put it in straight numbers, I am just a mutt. :)
