It’s one thing not to know every detail of your family’s history. It’s another thing not to know THE most basic information.
According to a new survey, one-third of Americans can’t name all four of their grandparents.
And that’s not all . . .
1. 21% can’t name a single one of their great-grandparents.
2. 21% don’t know what city any of their four grandparents were born in.
3. 14% don’t know what any of their grandparents did for work.
4. 35% don’t know what country or countries their family emigrated from to come to America.
5. And 40% don’t know the origin of their last name.
But . . . 84% say it’s important to them to know about their heritage.
