The Ancestral Places Geneameme


My Ancestral Places

Image Wikipedia ©©


Before our Australian National Family History month (August) ends, I have decided to participate in Alona Tester's family history blogging challenge of an alphabetical ancestral place name geneameme. Below are just a few of my ancestral places and some of the ancestral names associated with each place (I have added more names for Germany and Ireland than for other places). The only letters I could find no ancestral place beginning with is U and X athough I do have an ancestral Swiss first name of Xander from the 1500's. Thankyou for this fun geneameme Alona. It has given me the opportunity to reflect on the many and varied places where my ancestors lived and which collectively are all a part of my heritage and identity. This meme has also made me more determined to move forward with my One Place Study!

  1. Goodness that's a lot of work Sharn, I kept mine brief with just one place per letter.

  2. It's interesting to do the whole repertoire though isn't it? With all those overlapping places surely our ancestors knew each other - and surely the DNA connection would be apparent.....

    I was surprised you had no Ipswich (Qld) ancestors.

  3. My husband has DAWSON ancestors in Lincolnshire.

  4. Oh my goodness Sharn...what a fantastic list. I am very impressed.

  5. Sharn, I'm intrigued by 'UTTON LE HOLE, Durham, England'. I'm guessing that this is actually Hutton-le-Hole, North Yorkshire? It's a gorgeous village.
