Default Have you ever traced your family history?

My dad loves to have projects that he can work on in his spare time and the one he has been working on for the past few weeks is tracing our family lineage. Weve now got a fairly comprehensive family tree going back 10 generations from me.

Its been incredibly, incredibly interesting and, while there have been some uncomfortable facts that weve had to accept about our ancestors, its been hugely enlightening to know where our family comes from.

So, my question to you is: have you ever traced your family history and, if so, what did you find out?

If you havent, would it be something youd like to do?

I think some day I want to check about myself. I asked my mom about a DNA test one and she said it is expensive.

Good on you / him for going back 10 generations I cant imagine. That is so cool.

It would be interesting to do i know a bit of history, there’s a bit of a joke that on my mums side there was a murderer, apparently my Nans sister or cousin hit her brother over the head with a fire poker

Im not clumsy its just the floor hates me, the tables and chairs are bullies and the wall gets in the way

We haven't traced it back to Charlemagne or whatever, but we have traced it to the mid-19th century. Most of the records are with my family in Europe so we were only able to do this when visiting them there. It's all in French and Occitan and even German at that point, it was very interesting.
