Family History

To continue on with our geography unit, we passed out a family tree assignment for students to work on this weekend. I decided to jump in on the fun and have been working on it for the past few hours. I hope the kids find this as much fun as I do...or maybe I'm just a little nerdy! Anyways, I wanted to share a little with you all in hopes that this will drive the students to dig deeper!

*My grandfather was a Moore. I'm curious to see if I have any relation with Ambryah!
*I just discovered the last name of Cowan on my maternal grandfather's side. Nate?? My grandfather's mother's name was Annie Cowan (1871-1920).
*My 4Great Grandmother's 2nd cousin was Mark Twain!!!
*I have been able to trace my family back about a dozen generations to Quebec, Canada, Northern Ireland, France, Germany & Scotland.

Happy searching!
