Have you ever researched your family tree? Did you find anything interesting?

1 mom liked this

I haven't personally done any research but in years past went to some family reunions from my dad's side of the family and there were plenty of "relatives" who have done research.  I don't remember having any one famous or anything being found ... lol.

Johnny got his ethnicity done through a site called "23 and Me" and discovered he is only 17% Japanese which is curious since if my mom is 100% Japanese, he should be at least 25%.  So he paid to have Gma tested and sure enough, she is not 100% Japanese.  LOL.  I don't have a spare $100 right now to be tested myself but as soon as I can swing it, I will do the test, too.

That sounds like a cool test. I don't think there is hardly anyone the is 100% anything anymore.

I haven't done this but would like to. It's a lot of work to do it correctly.

Done a little but it cost money and really can't go to far into my family tree. I know I am Irish and German and English. Grandparents were in the circus and traveled around.

Some members of my family have done some research. It is fun to check into it once in awhile. Full-blown research, no, I have not done that.

Both Don and I have found out that there is an Anna in both sides of our family. Mine goes back a ways in Sweden and she had a lovely singing voice. My youngest daughter, Anna, loves to sing. She is almost always singing.

 I have so many pics of old family memebers some I have no ideal who they are. LOL. She gave me boxes of pics, and I am amazed and so interested in them. Grandparents also had their own sepentarium. Grandpa died by being bite by a poisionous snake that he was feeding. I can't make this stuff up!
