Thanks to Randy Seaver, Sheri Fenley, and Diane Haddad), I've been thinking about creating genealogical heritage pie charts for hubby and me. Alas, I don't have enough info to go back to all of our great-great-grandparents, so I had to adapt the idea...for now.
At left is Wally's heritage pie for his great-grandparents. He's 25% UK (the Slatter and Shehen lines).
The rest of his great-grands (Wood, Larimer, Demarest, Steiner, McClure, Rinehart) were from the US. The one Ohio great-grand might actually be from Pennsylvania, but we're not sure yet.
The second heritage pie, below, is for Sis and me, showing our grandparents' origins.
We're 50% Hungarian (both maternal grandparents were from Hungary), 25% Lithuanian, and 25% Latvian.
I do know the names of my great-grands on the Farkas and Schwartz trees, and can be fairly sure that they were from Hungary, as well. The Latvian great-grands (Birk) are mostly a mystery, and I know nothing at all about the Lithuanian (Mahler) great-grands (if that's where they were from). More research is needed!
