Family Origins

Hello everyone,

Today’s post was written to include our extended family – really extended – as in back to the early 1500s!  Because this document will be read by many people outside our immediate family, I have saved it as a pdf file to have some measure of document protection.  This means that it will not open as a Power Point and hyperlinks cannot be directly accessed with a click.  Web addresses of places I would like you to visit will have to be copied and pasted.

If you are reading this and do not belong to my Mississippi Fortenberry family, please skip forward to the records of North and South Carolina.

From the blogroll on the right, please choose Family Origins.  Once the pdf has downloaded, you will probably need to choose the icon on the toolbar that is a square with arrows in 4 directions.  This will make the slide fit the screen.  Also, use the “page down” button on the keyboard so that you do not have to scroll.

Note added on  April 16:  I made a correction from the information at the end of the document.  At 12 generations, we have 4096 direct ancestors.  That’s a lot of grandmas and grandpas!
