These birthplace charts are all the rage on genealogy blogs and Facebook right now. I created one for my lineage (with my father’s line being my adoptive father’s ancestors) and another one for my husband’s lineage. They are quite interesting, but if it went back a bit further, it would suddenly get quite a bit more interesting on several branches.
The charts begin with me (on the top chart) and my husband and go through our great-great-grandparents. The paternal lines are on the top of each pair and they have been color-coded by U.S. state or country.
- My official chart with my newly discovered biological father and his family can be found here.
The template I used was posted by Miriam Robbin at AnceStories. You can check out #MyColorfulAncestry on Twitter and Facebook to see charts created by others.
