Our Earliest Ancestor Found So Far

Our Earliest Ancestor Found So Far IS Gerd Gymersdotter
Gerd Gymersdotter is found in Grandma Etta Mae's hertiage.

Dear Family
Please do not be discouraged, I heard you all screaming to me but what about the Chapins and the Moorings. I do believe I will be able to establish lineage further back in these families. Please remember I have barely started my genealogy studies. There could truly possibly be ancestors documented from other lineages.




Born: abt 239 Uppsala, Uppsala, Sweden
Died: 267 Svitjod, Sweden

Gerd Gymerdotter is a direct relative to Queen Anne of Russia but I have not been able to establish a direct lineage to Queen Anne and our lineage yet. I hope the family starts getting the concept that this genealogy study does take enormous amounts of time.

The documentation for this person and lineage can be found on the internet via OneWorldTree

The OneWorldTree Score is created by comparing all the source records (tree, records, etc.) and community input and determining the most likely choice based on the available information.

OneWorldTree Choice

Where OneWorldTree Choice feel the score is high enough to indicate a piece of information is probably accurate (at least 4 stars), they make that item their "recommended" choice.
The information shown here is created by comparing all the source records (tree, records, etc.) and community input and determining the most likely choice based on the available information.

Often that information does not have enough evidence to be reliable. When that is the case ONEWORLDTREE CHOICE hides that information. None of the questionable data was added to this blog

Therefore OneWorldTree Choice information included 34 spellings of the name but is rather confident based on research that these 34 names are actually the same person being submitted to the ONEWORLDTREE internet website.
The 34 possible spellings and entries for this person's name are as follows. The number following the name indicates how many people submitted the same name. I am always suspicious of 26 User-submitted trees because sometimes these are just complete copy paste with no validation nor verification of the information. When this happens you result in 500 year old relatives or children being their own great great grandparents.

But as you can see the dates and places are very simular. Sometimes the places have changed names over the years. There are many incidents of this throughout our family tree history. As I write the migration section of the Hayley Family History I speak of this quite a bit --- the rule of thumb used by some genealogist is to use the name of the location as it was when the life event happened but then in notes whenever possible add an explanation and source for future genealogist.
