52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: Week 33


Week 33: Family Legend
It isn’t unusual for a family to have some sort of legend. Maybe it’s a legend surrounding the family’s arrival in a country or that there’s an ancestral castle waiting to be claimed. Maybe it’s a story about how you’re supposedly related to someone famous. You could explore how you proved or disproved the story. Then there are the “tall tales” that seem to get taller at every telling! Another way you could look at this prompt is someone who did something legendary or was considered a legend in their line of work or in their community. How are you going to interpret “family legend”?

Well if you ask the living family members they would all say that they are Legends. L😊L! There have been Here Say and Whispers of Things that have happened in generations passed that have been passed down through the line, but whether they are true or not remains to be seen.

LEDGEND:

That we are related to Normie Rowe. I think he is a cousin of another relation or in-law. My Question ?? Why / How am I related to 110 and counting Famous People from History on Ancestry’s, We’re Related? It is quite fun to wake up each morning and discover another one…

LEDGEND:

That my sister was swapped at Birth, My aunts worked in the Hospital where she was born and claim that she was prettier than the baby my Mum gave birth too so swapped her. False… She looks too much like me to not be my sister.

LEDGEND:

That my Grandparents where so poor, My Dad and Uncle had to go camping in a Cardboard Box instead of a tent, and that they had to wear chickens on their heads instead of party hats.

LEDGEND:

Did my great grandmother really have an affair with an Aboriginal man? No Idea, BUT I have found that her Great Grand Mother was 67% Aboriginal.

LEDGEND:

That the Greens are related to Royalty. I have found a couple of links, but am yet to prove if they are true or not.
