Saturday Night Genealogy Fun: Ellen’s Questions – Part 1

Another week has flown by and it’s Saturday. That means it is time for Randy Seaver’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun weekly challenge.

1)  Ellen Thompson-Jennings posted 20 questions on her blog this week – see Even More Questions About Your Ancestors and Maybe A Few About You (posted 27 June). 

2)  We will do these five at a time – Questions 1 to 5 tonight.

Here are Questions 1-5:

  1. Which ancestor had the most children? It can be a couple or a single person.
  2. How many years have you been working on your genealogy/family history?
  3. Do you collaborate with other genealogists on your family history?
  4. Have you hired a professional genealogist to work on your family history? Even if it was just a small branch of the family.
  5. If you have family heirlooms what’s your plan for their future?

And my answers:

1. Phillip Crouse and his wife, Sarah Burt, my 4X great grandparents are the winner here as they were the parents of 18 children and 17 of them lived to adulthood!
2. I have been working on the family history since 1980.
3. I have on occasion collaborated with others, but for the most part, I work on my own and do my own research. No copy and paste for me!
4. I have only hired a professional genealogist once, as I had no access to on-site materials in Copenhagen.
5. I have several items passed down in the family. If my son doesn’t come to appreciate them, they will pass down through my cousin’s son.

This is a fun challenge. I love memes and am looking forward to the rest of the questions. Thank you to both Ellen and Randy this week.
