From what I know of my ancestors so far, here are my place-based origins, based on the birth places of my direct ancestors. The places include:
- 27 in Ireland
- 13 in England
- 9 in Australia
- 2 in Scotland
- 1 in Wales
Does this mean I'm more Irish and England, than Australian?

I believe this trend of showing the birthplaces or other key details about your ancestors using a pedigree chart within Excel was started over the last few days by genie, J Paul Hawthorne. Thanks, Paul, for your idea!
