Saturday Night Fun Roulette

It's Saturday Night again - time for some more Genealogy Fun!!

Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):

1) How old is one of your grandfathers now, or how old would he be if he had lived? Divide this number by 4 and round the number off to a whole number. This is your "roulette number."

2) Use your pedigree charts or your family tree genealogy software program to find the person with that number in your ancestral name list (some people call it an "ahnentafel"). Who is that person?

3) Tell us three facts about that person in your ancestral name list with the "roulette number."

4) Write about it in a blog post on your own blog

Well my grandpa Hansen was born in 1870 in Humble parish, Svendborg County, in Denmark on the Laangland Island. So this year he would have been 141/4= 35.25 or 35.

#35 in my ahnentafel list was Maren Pederdatter, she was the daughter of Peder Rassmussen and Birth Catherine Nielsdatter

Maren was born 19 Dec 1778 in Hesselberg, Humble parish, Svendborg County, Denmark and died 9 March 1805 in Hesselberg.

Maren married Hans Anderson, son of Anders Hansen and Kirsten Madsdatter on 5 February 1804 at Hesselberg

Maren & Hans had one daughter Kristen, Hansdatter born 12 May 1804 in Humble parish.
