This tree continues down to the modern age and, of course, connects to the living, home person on this tree. The reason I didn't continue is that the next generation actually has a source attached. On all the info above there are no sources except other trees. I know, you're shocked.
There are stories attached to most of the Greek mythological characters and "mythology" is used many times in those stories. It didn't stop this person, and many others, from connecting their trees to mythological beings. Heck, why not say you're the son of Poseidon? Or maybe great-great-grandson would be more "realistic." Then you could finish your tree in 5 minutes and be done with it.
Once we get to profiles with actual birth and death years a number of profiles could each be a separate post.
  • Esprota De Senlis died over 500 years before her spouse was born.
  • Clement Norman (1680-1709) died on the day he was married. His son was born almost four years later. 
  • Clement Norman (1712-1712) died the day he was born but managed to marry and have a son, Clement Norman (1738-1817).
This is also one of those trees that uploads the same photo (most are from Wikipedia) to multiple profiles rather than upload the photo once and attach multiple profiles to it. Think of it next time there's a system slow down. Ugh.

NEXT POST: Love Yourself


  1. I so much enjoy your Blog - always makes me smile! I just wonder where on earth do these people come up with these lineages? As if the shaky shaking-leaf connections weren't bad enough - now AncestryDNA is linking me up to people who have an ancestor of the same name as one of my ancestors - but born and died in different locations and lived a generation apart in time and cannot be the same person. Showing me a nice comparison chart and how I am related to these people to whom I am not related at all. That's really going to add some interesting quirks to the trees.

    1. Thanks Kay! I've wondered how clickophiles and royal wannabes were going to screw up the DNA matches. I've already heard of one person who attached their own DNA results to an ancestor a few generations back. Yeah, that's not gonna mess up anything :-P

  2. Wow. Another great post. I hadn't seen this tree but I have gotten some "link suggestions" for trees that go to Adam & Eve!

    1. Thanks Melanie! There's someone on Ancestry's Facebook page making the Adam & Eve claim now :-/ I'm guessing after a few comments from serious researchers she'll be deleting the thread at any moment.

  3. Love reading your blog! With trees out there like this one, you'll never have time to find my minor mistakes! I never knew about attaching one photo to many people the way you recently described. Thanks for the tips in an entertaining way!

    1. Thanks for reading barb! When I first started there may have been a couple posts that may have only been minor mistakes but with hundreds of trees like this one there's no need to focus of the small stuff ;-)

  4. I have two sets of trees on ancestry. One of them is public and says "verified" everything in it is verified. I have a private one where I go click crazy on the leaves. That is my scratch pad for further research. People should have to sign an agreement when they join that they won't share anything public that they haven't verified.
