I’m not one to engage in genealogy games, but these two (which I made up myself) were somewhat interesting and got me to thinking about a variety of things.

Going back no further than your great-great-grandparents, which ancestor has places of birth and death the closest to each other? Think about how you know where they were born, how precise your knowledge of their birth place is, and how accurate that information is. For me, it’s two of my great-grandfathers who both born and died in places within three miles of each other.

How close are the places of birth for you and your maternal grandmother? For me it is 2.75 miles–roughly.

  1. 2976.12 miles… A fair ways away for my maternal grandmother.

    ~4627 mi… Much further away for my maternal grandmother.
