Who are the people who make up you?
What are the genes that had what it took to survive?
What awesome things did they do?
And how do all of these things make up you?
Those are the interesting stories people want to hear, so here they are. Anyway, lets jump into the action.
Anand’s ancestor cut a guy’s head off with a sword because he didn’t want to pay taxes and then he hid in a tree.
Did anything interesting like that happen to you?
William W. Davies, another one of Anand’s ancestors, started a cult that tragically ended when his sons, who he claimed were Jesus and The Holy Spirit, died and the prophet, Davies, couldn’t bring them back to life.
Our friend Will Lambert’s ancestor was a General in the Civil War.
Matthew Demopolos’ great grandfather’s name sounds like Thanos but is actually Panos.
And we took a poll on 4th grade playground. Most people said they were from Europe.
These are the interesting stories that make up those people so we encourage you to find out about your family history also.
