Both of us are into tracing our family tree's and discovering the past. Interestingly it leads to many finds. It's amazing to see how many of our ancestors had multiple wives and the scary volume of kids they kept producing.
We both have so far traced back several hundred years with some lines, but there really is a lot of mystery when the trail goes relatively cold. This is mainly due to a lack of digital records. The search will continue though.
One interesting fact I discovered about our family is that my family name actually signifies a werewolf. Apparently we descended from those who believed they could take the form and nature of a wolf. I wonder if that means I can start saying I am wolverine lol.
I can't wait to find out more about this fact and see where this belief came from.
Both of our families have a large Scottish/Irish side so that's where we are focussing our attention at the moment. It's one thing to follow the lineage but it will be great once we can start collecting stories to go with it.
