My Ancestral Location Chart

Lots of genealogy bloggers are posting ancestral birth charts illustrating where their ancestors were born through five generations. I figured it would be an interesting thing to do, so I borrowed a template that Judy G. Russell, the Legal Genealogist offered. I decided to add the locations of death for my grandparents and earlier generations. (My parents, and I, are living.) I thought it would better illustrate the migration. The colors represent location of birth.

I don't have birth certificates for most of my ancestors in the fourth and fifth generation, but the locations are likely accurate.

My paternal grandfather was on vacation when he died, but otherwise the location of death matches where the ancestor lived at the time.
