Well done to him.........but he isn't unique.

He's bothered to write it all down but an awful lot of people with some sort of medieval link can do exactly the same.

He's actually missed an opportunity because if he has William the Conqueror he could have gone back via the Emperor Charlemagne's ancestors to 380 AD and an ancestor called Afranius Syragrius.

The trouble is the media do like a sensational story but I know a number of my contacts on medieval forums with more people on their trees than that (and with documentation of some sort).

Thanks Sally. I Didn't see that one. I'll leave it on anyway in case anybody else didn't see the previous posting.
