Before we have a few million Europeans & others posting here, you may want to look at these links re. Charlemagne and his relatives... ;)
Interesting . i think the idea of doing genealogy is not just to see how far back you can go but it is more interesting to see what path you follow to get there and who these people were, what they did for a living , how they lived and how they died and who they met on the way. It's a story and stories take you anywhere and everywhere. It's a fascinating and sometimes horrifying journey or perhapes I should say adventure.
Really interesting journey to our roots.
More than a research work to know about ancestors, Genealogy means a fascinating adventure which connects us to the past sharing lifes and stories through time.
Charlemagne is an special example about this.
Thanks to the 36th Great Grandfather for having this discussion!
"If you live in Asia or Africa or you ancestors are from Asia or Africa you are probably not a descendant of Charlemagne.
But if any of your ancestors are from Europe, especially Western Europe, then it's almost certain that Charlemagne is one of your ancestors."
