Saturday Night Fun Genealogy Roulette

1) What year was one of your great-grandfathers born?  Divide this number by 50 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, and what are his/her vital information?

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

Well it was interesting that picking any of my great grandfathers gave me the same number: 37

Hans Mikkelsen born 1837 divided by 50 = 36.74
Stanislaus Dillingham born 1835 divided by 50= 36.7
Robert Forsyth Kelly born 1855 divided by 50= 37.1
Orville Travis born 1864 divided by 50=37.28

So Ahnentafel  number 37 is Karen Jorgensdatter
Karen was born about 1766 in Tullebolle, Denmark on the island of Laangeland
Karen married Peder Nielsen who was born about 1763 also in Tullebolle
Karen had at least one son Jorgen Pedersen born about 1791 also in Tullebolle
