I kept seeing "Sir this" and "Sir that" when tracing back, so I figured I'd just give into my uber whiteness and join into one of these things.

When I saw https://www.geni.com/path/Kenneth-Udut+is+related+to+Sir-Henry-Wentworth?from=6000000006821870245&to=6000000006444085575 - a Wentworth, that's when I gave in. I knew about the Rogers clan (my grandmother was a Rogers, and the line goes straight back to overseas through the founders of the USA), spending a LONG time in New Jersey and on a tiny area of CT (Branford and something called New Haven, which is just a few miles away).

So, I gave in.  Right now I'm 44, living in Naples, Fl but I spent the first 30 years in Roselle Park, NJ.  Apparently, most of my tree never LEFT the area for centuries.

So, hi.

Self-directed learning. We've had public libraries for a long time but now? It's really here. It's so much all around us that we don't even notice it, like fish not noticing the water their in.

I look forward to an enterprising University that offers free tuition and credit for Internet-based learning. We are all capable of being autodidacts now in a way never possible before in history.

What will travel down your internet stream to you?

What will you send upstream from you?

and now the wet blanket of mathematics.

Turns out, if you're you've got ANY European ancestry, you're probably related to Charlemagne.. or any other number of royal folk.

Even more interesting: except for recent immigrants:

"all Europeans alive today have among their ancestors the same man or woman who lived around 1400."

Who is this magical Adam or Eve of modern times? I dunno. But in the end, there's only so many families and they're gonna bump into each other... literally so.

Humanity is truly an interwoven tapestry. Still, it's fun picking at the individual threads and seeing what shows up on the other side of the timeline.

Nobody in my past was hugely famous, at least that I know of. I vaguely recall that an ancestor of mine who shipped over on the Mayflower distinguished himself by falling out of the ship and having…

Going backwards down another line – "apparently" - i'm also a descendent of King Alfred the Great, who was fond of education, did a lot of writing, and encouraged the widespread learning of English reading and writing.

This is a thing to help people read his book – a book he wrote for bishops about pastoral care. I believe it was called "pastoral care".

The writing on the side says: "Alfred ordered me made". I presume it's because, Alfred ordered the object to be made.

Is Kenneth Udut the descendent of kings? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Through the centuries, enthusiastic genealogists, ancestry researchers, heritage seekers, and those seeking some legitimacy to their lives – could shift things around so that they become descended from Kings.

So, I don't know. But it's fun to imagine.

Here my findings, ( on google , ofcourse)
Kenneth
Kenneth is an English given name and surname. The name is an Anglicised form of two entirely different Gaelic personal names: Cainnech and Cináed. The modern Gaelic form of Cainnech is Coinneach; the name was derived from a byname meaning "handsome", "comely".[1] The name Cinaed is partly derived from the Celtic *aidhu, meaning "fire".[2] A short form of Kenneth is Ken or Kenn. A pet form of Kenneth is Kenny.[3]

I don't place a whole lot of stock in genealogy: despite well connected charts, there are plenty of adopting neighbors, affairs, record-keeping issues, AND over-enthusiastic family hunters who want to attach their family to something significant in history.

ALL THAT BEING SAID... I'm pretty confident this is accurate.

Knight Sir John FITZ ROGER, born in 1387 is apparently my 17th great-grandfather.

So: 1/2 genes from mother, 1/2 from father.

That means: 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of Knight Sir John Fitz Roger is in me.
or

I'm 0.00019073486328125% Knight Sir John Fitz Roger.

Still, it's fun stuff and... that also means that there's likely many thousands upon thousands of people on this planet who ALSO are 1.9073486328125e-6 of Knight Sir John Fitz Roger hanging around.

What does this mean? I dunno. Just fun to find this stuff out.

Ok, I'm starting to see how this genealogy stuff works.
So, since Barack Obama is ALSO related to Queen Elizabeth II, then I'm related to Barack Obama. Ok, now I'm starting to 'get it'.

7 steps to Kevin Bacon... Royalty Edition.
(aaand, yes we did play this at a riverside cafe... once in London, once in France... as well as on a long train ride, further inland:- though it wasn't so popular in Spain or Portugal, for some reason... and the Japanese version, kinda blew my mind.)

Well, that traces back my apparent Swedish route.
Njord Vanir, King in Sweden, born around 214 AD, is my 54th great grandfather.
That explains why I like Swedish Fish. Mystery solved.

Ah! Rogers  is from Hrothgar (Beowulf) and was likely a real person.. with exaggerations I'm sure.


Via Wikipedia:
"Hrothgar /ˈhr̥oːðgɑːr/ (Old English: Hrōðgār; Old Norse: Hróarr) was a legendary Danish king living in the early 6th century.[1]
Hrothgar appears in the Anglo-Saxon epics Beowulf and Widsith, in Norse sagas and poems, and in medieval Danish chronicles. In both Anglo-Saxon and Scandinavian tradition, Hrothgar is a Scylding, the son of Halfdan, the brother of Halga, and the uncle of Hrólfr Kraki. Moreover, in both traditions, the mentioned characters were the contemporaries of the Swedish king Eadgils; and both traditions also mention a feud with men named Fróði and Ingeld. The consensus view is that Anglo-Saxon and Scandinavian traditions describe the same person."

This classic is a good example of positivity. Talks about the "angry young man"

I have known Graham Ginsberg for several years now. Our contact has been online and I have worked with him on several occasions. He has a problem-solver mindset, honest, is motivated and focused and has a great attention to detail. He understands the local housing market to a degree few could hope to achieve, and he also understands both the real estate market as a whole and all facets of marketing. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of his services.

My mother has been in rehab for knee surgery there for a couple of weeks now. Absolutely amazing! 1) Staff is extremely friendly and anticipates her needs. 2) The surroundings are gorgeous - paintings, statues, yet very warm and comfortable. 3) The food is terrific. Can't say enough about the food. 4) It's the closest thing to staying in a hotel for your rehab. 5) They push you "just enough" where you feel steady progress each day. She can do more and more each day and by the time she gets out, she should be walking without any support - or at the very least, a cane for a short time. Already the pain is 1/2 what it was before the surgery. Thanks Chateau! -Ken

The surgery for my mother's knee went swimmingly. She has allergies, and he was extremely careful to use only equipment and supplies that were safe for her - even so much as to use a pure titanium knee replacement because of her allergy to nickel (the standard knee replacements have some nickel in them, so if you're allergic to cheap jewelry, you should probably get the pure titanium knee) His personality and the bedside manner of his staff is fantastic. Already two weeks after the surgery, she's in 1/2 the pain she was in before she had the surgery. Great Job, Dr. guerra!

Mom's been in rehabilitation for her knee surgery for a couple of weeks now. Every day she sees and feels progress. The staff is absolutely amazing, anticipates her needs. The food is fantastic and they push her "just enough" where she wakes up the next morning with more balance, more control, more strength. They know what they're doing there. The surroundings are beautiful with art, statues, even birds in a glass cage which are very entertaining.
