I was on a thread earlier, and the woman mentioned she kept a family bible. Do you or someone you know have a family bible with the history of your family? if so, how far back does it date? what interesting facts would you like to share? me personally...we just recently lost the last copy of our family bible. i found out a couple of years back that my family was huge on blacksmithing, and we mostly immigrated from ireland, but we constantly married germans.

i used to feel the same way, but i find it awesome what career my family was known for, i would find out yours, you never know, you may be like a duke or something and not even know. ( duke /dutchess w/e) for example, on my mother's side is like half french and half german and we were looking up her french side, and apparently we are the by -products of a concubine to lionheart the brave lol. i dont know if that is a good thing or not , but meh.

Whoa! Being connected somehow to a noted historical figure can be surprising. Is that a French king, if I'm not mistaken?

no unfortuantely i can't claim anything because it was only a concubine... and i really can't remember havn't studied him in years lol. i think he was king for a short time. because he was called the lionheart, normally kings back then had titles.
