I decided to join in Randy Seaver’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun:

  1. List your 16 great-great-grandparents with their birth, death and marriage data (dates and places).
  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.

Here is the data that I have on my gg-grandparents:
