Has anyone else find they are descendant of certain persons a few times over? Example- I am descendant of Edward the 1st thru 2 daughters( one of them Joan of Acre twice by 2 of her daughters) and Edward the 2nd. It get a little confusing til I see direct path of relation. I know that the royals married each other to keep blood line and make alliances but geesh! :)
Neither had I. Sounds made up. Probably isn't but it sounds that way! But like you I am connected to historical people several way , through several line. Example. King Henry the 2ND of England. I come down through William Longspree and King John. Also more recently three sisters married two brothers and another of my relatives. Then their children inter married cousins and then the thrid gen. did the same things. It can get messy but interesting.Judy
isn't the truth,
that they kept a closer watch on the lineages of their cats, dogs, horses, and, their own royal family lines - than, they kept ancestral lineage tabs on the people, except, of course, when it came to taxing them ?
ancestral collapse ? never, heard that term before
i thought, it was called pedigree collapse
