I would like to share with you the surnames of my direct ancestors, namely my grandparents through to 5th great grandparents.
As you can see from the list below I am only missing one 2nd great grandparent. This was my first brick wall and has remained so. I will deal with this missing person in a future blog. To keep it simple the list just states the surname, this is followed by the locations (i.e. towns, parishes and counties) that my ancestors lived in during their lifetime.
TIMMINS – Kingswinford, Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, Dudley, Worcestershire.
HAYES – Great Boughton, Chester, Cheshire.

The above Ancestor Chart was created from my Family Tree Maker database by Charting Companion. Hover the mouse over the chart image to zoom into the detail (uses the WP Image Zoom plug-in by SilkyPress.com)
Love the zoomable tree – I had the same thought when reading Mark's post on Think Genealogy – glad to see it in action.
I recently read about the Zoom.it image viewer for displaying images online but I never thought to use it to display a family tree on my blog – what a great idea, it looks great!
Great ap! Love it.
