I was just thinking today how one can have very interesting, if not famous, ancestors. For example, somewhere up there in my family tree, and I mean way up, is Pocahontas. I didn't believe it at first when I read it in our family tree book, and honestly thought it was just name dropping, but we did some tracking through the pages, and low and behold, it fits in there.
Another one I haven't confirmed yet is the Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne. That one I find harder to believe than the first one, but I haven't found the time or patience to try and track the ancestors through that book to see if it really does match up. It's a few too many centuries to try and find the links there. Especially with how that book is. It's rather... unorganized, shall we say? And big. It's a big book.
How about you guys? Got any interesting ancestors that you know of?
