The challenge for Randy’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun is to list 16 great-great-grandparents:

  1. List your 16 great-great-grandparents in pedigree chart order. List their birth and death years and places.
  2. Figure out the dominant ethnicity or nationality of each of them.
  3. Calculate your ancestral ethnicity or nationality by adding them up for the 16 – 6.25% for each (obviously, this is approximate).
  4. If you don’t know all 16 of your great-great-grandparents, then do it for the last full generation you have.
  5. Write your own blog post, or make a comment on Facebook or in this post.

I am a bit late to this challenge because I was on holiday. My gg-parents are listed below. They are all Dutch – I need to go back a few generations more to find other nationalities. So that adds up to 100% Dutch for me.
