In the past couple of days, genealogists have been creating charts in Excel showing the birth places of their ancestors covering five generations. I couldn't resist and I have to share it because this truly shows what my brother had noted years ago.
Other than my maternal grandmother's line, there is a lot of color in this chart! I even tried to choose the colors so that red, orange and yellow represent births in Nova Scotia and New England and green, blue and purple represents births in New York and New Jersey down to Kentucky and out to Pennsylvania and Illinois.
Thank you to Lorine McGinnis Schulze at Olive Tree Genealogy for my first look at this, as well as Jana Last at Jana's Genealogy and Sally Knudsen at SallySearches and all those other genealogists on Facebook who are sharing theirs!
