Imagine having absolutely no idea that you’re a descendant of royalty. MyHeritage.com user Jennifer Pelot Rysewyk, like many people, had little knowledge her family’s past.
Her Grandparents were rural farmers and her parents were factory workers, hence Jennifer presumed that her roots were working class. Jennifer, from Wisconsin, began researching her family history last year, and can now lay claim to being related to some of the most infamous royals in history.
Jennifer began building her family tree on MyHeritage.com, primarily in an attempt to trace her father’s family originating from Germany and Poland. However the most fascinating discoveries were to be found on her mother’s side of the family.
Having made a living by farming for several generations, Jennifer discovered some surprising connections on this side of the family to many members of European royalty.
In this series we look at some of the more interesting family stories from around the world over the past 7 days.
Included in this week's list are stories from USA, The Netherlands, Korea, Turkey and Fiji
