Okay, so yesterday on a whim, I decided to start a family tree on Ancestry.com. Soon after that, I signed up for the 14-day free trial.

A few hours after that I had a family tree for my paternal grandmother's line going back 12 generations to the 1500s.

Holy crap am I OCDing over this site, but it's fascinating.

I have ancestors named Zillah and Hieronymus.

My dad, whom I've always thought of as simply English, German, and a bit Scotch-Irish, has heritage including Swiss, Dutch, and Alsatian. A lot of Alsatian, actually. I wonder if my father's family is distantly related to [livejournal.com profile] mrteapot.

I suspect this is how I'm going to be spending a lot of my time in the near future. :-P
