Map Your Ancestors web site

There is an interesting web site that allows you to map out where your ancestors lived. Map Your Ancestors has the George W. Bush ancestry on the front page. It shows five generations of birth and death locations for the President superimposed on a Google map of the eastern USA, with the ancestors names and dates on the left hand side of the page.

The second chart available on the site charts the major events in Bill Clinton's life - from Arkansas to the White House and then ??? However, it doesn't show his many overseas trips or his trysts...probably too much information to get on the map, eh?

I signed up on the site and started to input my 5 generations. I stopped due to other activities, but I'll finish it up soon. I was entry #139. I don't know if other people will be able to see my entries - I'll check that out and blog about it if that is possible.

If a map like this is something you want or need - check out Map Your Ancestors.
