I’ve researched my father back to 1850 and my mother back to the 1500s. There are many places to start your search, but I’ve found that putting a grandparents name in quotes on Google is sometimes the best way to find where someone else has already done the research for you and they are willing to share.

If someone had told Melvinia as a young woman that someday her descendant would be the wife of the President of the USA what would her reaction have been?

I will look forward to hearing about Obama’s ancestry too.

I have it on good authority that MY genealogy goes all the way back to 980000 BC.

In fact, some reckon it actually goes back to 2498000 BC.

A couple of people think it only goes back to 3700 BC. But they also believe in little invisible men.

Now how about a genealogy report on the President himself. I’m sure that will be even more interesting.
