I have heard rumours of something like this in the family for years and years, but because I am not really into genealogy I never really followed it up.
Anyhow, recently a considerable amount of materials and charts showed up with rather detailed information. Not that I am infatuated of reading through mind numbing lists of names and dates.
I am also unsure of the syntax of geneology.
But it seems I am the 9th great grandson of Myles Standish. (( likely one of zillions, I dunno ))
I have heard of him, but frankly don't really know who he is/was.
Guess I am supposed to check this out.
