Progress Report: My Mother's Family

The first chart below shows several generations back for my mother's family. A lot has been added since I first posted her family tree on this blog. Of course, each of these people has many more pages showing relatives of their own, which you can see by clicking on any name.

When I first started this research, it was difficult to know where to begin, as there were so many blank generations to be filled in. I knew my mother's parent's and grandparent's names, but my knowledge stopped there. This chart shows both the progress and the places where more research is needed. Clearly, I will need to be concentrating on my great-grandmother, Martha Grant, and her ancestors. 

This chart doesn't tell the whole story, however. There just isn't enough room on this page to represent all the known generations. If you will scroll down to the second chart, which starts with my great great grandfather, John Shepherd Kinney (1802-1872) who is in the fourth column from the left in the first chart, you will see that there is more to the story.

This second chart takes us back to my ggggggg grandparents, if I've counted correctly. WikiTree's concept of a "worldwide collaborative family tree" makes this chart possible. The further back we get in family history research, the more genealogists have worked on our common ancestors and the more information we have to share.

But wait, there's more! If you will locate Daniel Kenney (1705-1780) in the chart below, we can take a look at his ancestors as well. Just scroll down to the third chart. I hope you'll be surprised to find out just how far back we can go. I certainly was!

I have to send out thanks to all the genealogists who have spent many thousands of hours compiling this information. Perhaps, working together, we actually can build a collaborative family tree for the entire world's population. Anything is possible, I suppose. 

One last note: It's almost an embarrassment of riches, but if you click on Henry Kinne's (1623-1696) name below, then on "family tree" on his page, you can see that his information reaches back for at least another four generations.

  1. From my sister, Jean: So our grandparents on Mother's side changed from Crabb to Crabtree halfway through having their kids? I wonder if David was particularly close with his brother Everett since they seem to be the only kids in that generation of his family who changed their names to Crabtree. Or maybe they lived near each other? Might that be a possible lead on Everett's whereabouts? I don't know how you avoid getting overwhelmed with Mother's family!
