When I was thinking about if I should link to the Wiki or not, there was actually one item that pushed me in this direction. Namely, I have for YEARS been wanting to put a family tree type thing up on Several years ago I’d actually made some templates for the pages and such, but it was kind of a pain, so I never got very far with it. The Wiki thing has really enabled that by just making it a much more frictionless process to quickly get what I want up. I’d actually started with a big Excel spreadsheet and I now have 180 ancestors on that spreadsheet. (And quite a few of the “deep nodes” on there I know I can go deeper, I just haven’t yet. For instance, the stuff I mentioned in New Deepest Relative isn’t reflected there yet.)

I quickly realized though that I wasn’t capturing a lot of interesting information in that format. So I started putting it on the Wiki and adding a lot more info. As of now, I have 28 ancestors up on the Wiki. I’ll probably post whenever I add a new ancestor. But first I’ll catch up on the ones I’ve already posted (don’t worry, not all at once.) You can of course click through on the Wiki itself and find the others, but I’ll post them here one at a time.

So of course, I must start at myself.

I was born in 1971 in Madison, Wisconsin. And I lived a bunch of places. For now I’ve left my Biography section blank. You may all feel free to add info there if you feel like it. :-)

Other than that, I think I’ll start posting the others I already have up based on a breadth first search maybe one a day (maybe more, maybe less, we’ll see). If I add new people I’ll post them immediately if I already have their direct decedent posted, otherwise they will wait a bit.

Also, despite what I said about nothing being of interest to anybody, once you get several generations down, there are lots of people looking for this kind of information. After all, once you get back six or seven (or more) generations, these folks often have many thousands of decendants. And some of those descendants will also be looking into this kind of stuff. On some of these deep relatives I have found HUNDREDS of pages on the web where people are trying to sort out what information is known about some of these people. Most duplicate each other, and for those people I’ll be duplicating too, but I’m trying to be nicely comprehensive when I can be and link to all my sources, so I might be of use to other people looking for some of these people.
