Twitter Users Share Funny & Fascinating Tales From Their Ancestry

If you go back far enough in your genealogy, chances are there are a few interesting stories that are worthy of being shared with family members, friends - or even Twitter. Yesterday, we were hit with the motherlode of ancestral anecdotes on the Bird App, thanks to Jamie Schler. In a viral tweet, the writer asked her fellow Twitter users to share their odd and cool tidbits of genealogical lore. And boy did the people deliver. The tales span centuries, from the Revolutionary War all the way to the misguided war in Vietnam.
