Again I'm late with the SaturdayNight Genealogy Fun challenge issued by Randy Seaver over at GeneaMusings.
Here's Randy's challenge:
Hey, genealogy readers and champions - it's Saturday Night - time for more Genealogy Fun!
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:
1) Pick one of your ancestral lines - any one - patrilineal, matrilineal, zigzag, from a famous ancestor, etc. Pick a long one if you can.
2) Tell us which position in the birth order that your ancestor was in each generation. For example "third child, first son." Also list how many children were born to these parents.
3) Share your Birth Order work with us on your own blog post, in a comment to this blog post, in a comment on Facebook, etc.
