My ancestors ~ John Calvin and John Wesley (seriously)

True confession, I'm a genealogy 'nut'!!

I have been since about 4th grade when a dear neighbor lady, who was a much loved history teacher, introduced me to an 'ancestral chart' and showed me how to trace my ancestors. Oh my, was I ever hooked--all those nice neat lines expanding across pages and pages lending credibility to hunches and solving 'family mysteries'.

So, imagine my delight, bliss, and laughter when I discovered ancestors by the names of 'John Calvin' and 'John Wesley'.

John Calvin is on my paternal side which is Pennsylvania Dutch, and John Wesley is on my maternal side which includes British and Irish ancestry.

So, now you know! :-)
