Haha that's pretty cool! My grandpa got hooked up with somebody who was tracing his family and he was all into it until he found out his ancestors were French and changed their name spelling to make it appear less French either because they were facing discrimination or they were criminals. Knowing his family, they were probably criminals. Anyway, he quit digging when he learned the French part cause he hates France and denies any connection. So other than that, I only know bits and pieces over the last 150 yrs or so. I think its so interesting though! How fun!

Wow very cool! My grandma was big into tracing back our family and I know she got as far as when we came to America back in the 1600s.

How cool! Are you a descendent of Eleanor of Aquitaine? She's one of my favorite royals. How did you come across the information?

I haven't gotten into tracking our family history. My sister does it, but I don't know how far back she's gone. My aunt does it, too.
