Pedigree Chart of Ancestor Birth

This is making the rounds on Facebook but I wanted to share on here just in case you haven’t seen it yet. This is a pedigree chart of 6 generations of my ancestor’s birth places.

Look at all those Michigan ancestors!

It takes another generation to get them out of Michigan completely (and one of those may  have been born in Michigan and not the Texas everyone assumes – but I need more support for my assumption).

I knew I had lots of Michigan ancestors but this does make it clear! Did you know I went to the same high school as my great-grandparents? It would have been the same one my 2x great-grandparents attended but it hadn’t been built yet 🙂

Anyone else try this? Do share!

  1. Very cool! I love different ways to visualize data. I’ll have to try this. How did you create it? Is it just a table in word?

      It’s an Excel file actually! I can send it in an email if you’d like!
