My version of the +J Paul Hawthorne charts (thanks for the idea). #familyhistory. Plus my Ancestry ethnicity profile which I know is problematic however it implies I have lost some Irish ancestors and the family myth about there being French ancestors might be true. Plus with the gaps in my chart looks like I have loads of more research do.
