Is it true that one of my Great Grandfathers – a 13th Great Grandfather – .  was King James II of Scotland.  Amazing!  Genealogy research is fascinating.

I like to think of the generations stretching back from my grandparents.  Three of my 4 grandparents were alive when I was born.  I have memories of two of them – my maternal grandfather and my paternal grandmother.  So the Great Greats somehow do not seem so remote if people I knew could remember their grandparents etc.  Oh the questions I could have asked.
