Ancestor charts

Places where ancestors were born

A message on facebook (Carmel Galvin>Australian Local & Family History Bloggers) stated that lots of folks are posting a 5 generation chart of places where ancestors were born.

This is mine.

I decided to go one step further, to set up a pie chart showing the % of ancestors from a particular country.

Ancestors by country

And then another one to show the details for each county/state (colony)



And then I decided to even further, and created maps of where my ancestors were from with Google Maps.  I decided to do two separate maps, one for the United Kingdom and Ireland, and the other for Australia.

This is the one from Australia

And the one from the UK and Ireland
