Saturday Night Genealogy Fun – My "Heritage Pie" Chart

The Saturay Night Genealogy Fun (SNGF) challenge this week, presented by Randy Seaver at Genea-Musing, is to:

1) List your 16 great-great-grandparents with their birth, death and marriage data (dates and places).

2) Determine the countries (or states) that these ancestors lived in at their birth and at their death.

3) For extra credit, go make a “Heritage Pie” chart for the country of origin (birth place) for these 16 ancestors.

4) Tell us about it in your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or in a post on Facebook or Google+.
