    Post How far back can you trace your ancestry?

    How far back can you trace your ancestry? I can go back to my great-great grandparents on my mothers mothers side and to at least my great-grandparents on all other sides.What about others? And how far back do you think you need to trace your roots to be considered as of that type?

    The Northern English side of my family can be traced back before the Norman Invasion of England.

    Post Re: How far back can you trace your ancestry?

    I can trace back my family pretty far. Clearly, knowing who everyone is 100% perfectly, I can trace it back to early 1800's. By family tradition, we keep family trees. Then a while back, my father,my grandfather and his 2 cousins, where doing some research about our family last name, and we discovered that one of our ancestors, was in the East Dutch company as a mercenary in South Africa and that it is very likely that some of our ancestors where Norman-Sicilian knights(I would explain more, but to do so properly, I would have to give away my last name, and I don't want too in this type of messageboard).
    But I think to be considered a "Type" is hard. I think every person who considers himself/herself white, should atleast know if all his greatgrandparents are white.
    Just close your eyes...can you remember
    The generations not so long ago
    I feel the shameless urge that we must restore
    Our former king to his rightful throne
    And with me lords and maidens
    We wait for the chosen son's return

    I come alive
    It's a time for celebration
    Our will to restore
    Make our past become the futre once more

    Still he lives! 2000 years have passed
    And still we're yearning for his return
    We fulfill a wishful prohecy
    And so the chanting begins
    Hail Caesar...Hail Caesar...we render unto you
    What is still yours

    I can trace most of my English/Welsh families to at least the 14th Century (some families to before the Norman Conquest); I have my Swiss family histories to the 15th Century.

    What about others? And how far back do you think you need to trace your roots to be considered as of that type?
    That has many variables, let's say you can trace all your roots to 15th Century in one certain area.,. Does that mean every single person was of that type, what if a Viking brought back some Sicilians/Grecian females, what if some other tribe came into a area across some distance bringing their DNA or you were that wandering tribe?, what was the standard/litmus test for a genealogy back then? Was the Royalty line different than others? And the biggest one is what about the lines before any recording of ancestry? Many variables..

    17,000 years of Aryan ancestry traceable by mitochondrial DNA.

    I wasn't aware of a test that would enable someone to have positive proof of pure "Aryan" ancestry for over 17,000 years?

    It's kind of hard to trace your family line here in the Balkans, but I know that an ancestor of mine was some kind of a landlord in Macedonia, and he probably had the title of Despot, and my last name comes from his title.
