SNGF - “Heritage Pie” Chart

This week’s challenge from Randy is:

  • List your 16 great-great-grandparents with their birth, death and marriage data (dates and places). 
  • Determine the countries (or states) that these ancestors lived in at their birth and at their death.
  • For extra credit, go make a "Heritage Pie" chart for the country of origin (birth place) for these 16 ancestors. [Hint: you could use the  chart generator from Kid Zone for this.] [Note: Thank you to Sheri Fenley for the "Heritage Pie" chart idea.]
  • Tell us about it in your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or in a post on Facebook or google+.

Here’s mine:

I didn't realize you had ancestors from Luxembourg. My Lenertz line is from Beaufort, Echternach, Luxembourg. Cool!

To be honest, I didn't know that for a while...they almost always stated Germany in records. It wasn't until I found a marriage certificate that I learned about Echternach, Luxembourg. That's pretty cool that we both have family from the same neck of the woods :)
