Ancestor Finds, Presidents and Kings

If you have not figured it out by now I love history.
Which is a good thing as I travel the trail of the Lynch family tree.
It is amazing what you find.

After finding we were related to George Washington,
we found as we traveled back further that we are related to
Captain Henry Morgan
This totally thrilled the grand kids!
Going abit futher down the bunny trail we find another batch of Kings.
King Aethelred of England 968-1016
King Edgar of England  943-966
King Edmnd I of England 922-946
King Edward of England 874-924
King Alfred the Great of England  848-899

King Aethelwulf of Wessex 795-858
King Egbert of Wessex 769-839
King Ealhmund of Kent
There are more Kings in this line that I am investigating.

Then another trail led to Vikings!
Starting with Richard the fearless Duke of Normandy.

And it ended with King Fornjot, King of Finland and Kvenland. Born 530.

It is amazing to see where all this is leading!
We are excited to see what else is out there.

We are looking forward to watching the series
"Who do you think you are".  Sponsored by
It is fun to see what they find in each stars background.
It starts Feb. 3rd.

So, have you started looking yet?
You might be as surprised are we are!
