nope, and realy have no great desire to,... my great grandmother always spoke of fine french blood,.. but i know that my family tree is no different than a million others,... i am decended from a long line of two bit thieves and common working class folk who scratched out a living until they were burried in poorly marked graves,...
i also have a theory that todays geneology records that are being built with the help of the internet may well be the tools of the next generations genocide,... we are, through our own vanity in wanting to find famous or infamous relatives in our otherwise mundane past,... we are slowly building the geneolical blue print of an entire people,... our racial heritage will be a click away soon,... to those who would use it,...
makes me glad my family tree only goes back 5 generations to a half breed illiterate indian girl of 13 who was purchased by her soon-to-be husband from a wagon train,... she cost him a horse, and bore him 12 children,... without ever being able to read thier names.
I am in the process of tracing the trees of my wife and I. It has been aninteresting process so far and I have gathered a lot of information about one side of the family I knew very little about.
