A Royal Descent

I’ve been bugging my brother-in-law for details of his genealogy for years now. He knows a few bits and pieces, but isn’t really interested in the subject other than to remind me that he belongs to the same Middleton family as the signer of the Declaration of Independence. It’d be nice to have some details there. Lately, my sister has taken the problem in hand and gathered some info. Using web sources, it took only a few minutes to develop a descent from Edward I. Keyed it into the database, and sent .pdf pedigree charts to the folks who might be interested. Here’s the fun part — some of them said thanks, but so far not one of them has actually looked at the info in enough detail to notice King Edward. I think I’m going to draw out the suspense. Mum’s the word until someone actually notices.
