"Tales of pioneer hardship and deprivation have been told many times. Yet still we remember in wonder, that people accomplished so much with so little; that men and women with simple tools, their bare hands, and their own inventiveness cleared the land, drained the swamps, made their own clothing and provided their own food. Through all these difficulties God was with them and they wanted their children educated intellectually and spritually." from Norfolk Street United Church history

Where Did My Ancestors Come From?

from Eastman's Online - Dick Eastman

Myron Phillips wrote to tell about a mapping site that contains information about the origins of many Europeans. The map gives history and a timeline up to modern day. It is primarily European maps, but touches on Asia.

If you have had your DNA tested, you already know where your earliest ancestors originated. Now you can see where they originated on a map. You can also see migration patterns and also see a timeline of those migrations. The European History Interactive Map at Worldology.com shows the origins of nations and ethnogroups. It optionally can also show ancient and modern political boundaries.

You can find the Worldology interactive maps at http://www.worldology.com/Europe/europe_history_lg.htm
