Randy Seaver’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun included making a “Heritage Pie” chart for the country of origin (birth place) for these 16 ancestors. [Hint: you could use the chart generator from Kid Zone for this.] [Note: Thank you to Sheri Fenley for the “Heritage Pie” chart idea.]
For a bit of light relief I thought I’d bake a birth pie for my great-great grandparents and their place of origin. This involves a little creative licence as I still have no information on the county of origin of my Sherry ancestor or anything really for my Callaghan g-g-grandparents but I think I’m fairly confident that they were born in Ireland. So here’s my slices of heritage pie. Sorry I didn’t quite get the colour right for my Queensland marriages -it should be maroon! The residual deaths overseas reflects the fact that two branches of my famillies were late arrivals (1883 and 1910). No wonder I identify so readily with the Irish and the Scots.
