I looked at my genealogy and almost spit out my coffee. :open_mouth: I exclaimed "I'm a great-great-great-great-great-grandmother!" and my husband stopped what he was doing and raised his eyebrows at me. :flushed: I had to take the time to show him that I have generation 7 folks now and that I was using an abstract description that keeps track of the relationship better in my brain. I made this graphic to show him: [img]https://i.imgur.com/AKAJWIX.png[/img] Am I the only one who thinks of it this way?

Birdie, Congratulations for being a 5 times great grandmother, and still look so so young:smile: I hope you will pass on the genes to your generation (team):smile: I am sure you did put in a lot of time, effort, and perseverance to accomplish this success, and share it in a way that even the newbies can understand:smile: Even though I am sure I am older than you in every way, I may be up for adoption:pensive::grinning:

Hi Birdee, It is great to see the depth of Grand Relationship you have created. It is afterall building the legacy and passing it on to the next generation. We, in India have heard of these things from our great grand parents about how our ancestors protected the old culture and old scriptures by educating the next generation. The process continues for more than several thousand years. Thanks for reminding me the golden old traditions and All the very best for your future. Harshvardhan
