|Meet my 40th great grandfather CHARLEMAGNE|
Actually, when I got done tracing, there are at least SIX lines that go back to Charlemagne, and even further back to some King Clodius of the ostragoths or something. I stopped about there, because his lineage goes back to like King Tut or Moses or something, lol. I don't need quite that much info.
But I do think my friend Kristi is right--Someone totally owes me some back rent on some castles, or the Vatican or something. Right?
Of course, on my mom's side, I descend from Polish coal miners, villagers, and bee keepers with names like Boleslawa Skiendzielewski and Rosalija Kiskiunaite Gylys, so there may be a discount for that--unless they trace back to the Russian Czars or something, but that's highly doubtful.
I still have another whole branch of my dad's side to research--the first part was just on his mom's family tree, but really, after Charlemagne...what else is there?
P.S....As it turned out, there wasn't anything interesting on my dad's paternal side. They came from Scotland in 1782. The end. (for now)
Guys. You should totally check yours out.
