My curiosity about my ancestry began with exploring what little data was available about the CARTERs and the MUNROs.  It was surprisingly easy to add to the information and it quickly enlarged.   Soon dozens and then hundreds of other surnames appeared.

Since everyone's ancestors double in number with each generation, it's not long before investigation reveals an astonishing number.  To put this into perspective, if you successfully trace your family ancestry back through ten generations, say to about three hundred years ago, more than one thousand people will be identified who made a contribution to your genetic makeup.

In this case, one line of our CARTER ancestry has been traced back to the time of William the Conqueror in the 11th century, with a more tenuous linkage to Florence, Italy in the 9th century.   (See Medieval Connection.)
