Hmmmm, seems a little fishy to me...since only recently there was a story on cable television, about the rune stone found in Minnesota, credited to;
Vikings, Templar's with Cistercian MONK connections. Since the monks were celibate to the church, and did not have relationships...I wonder how you
could prove your lineage to both the Holy Order of Templar Knights and celibate Cistercian monks?
I can prove with documents; that my own lineage goes back to the 1400's and 1600's from both sides. My family name, crest's, history are registered
in England,Germany,Netherlands,and France. Our family was connected to Royal houses only by employment, and the subsequent titles that accompanied
it. ( Teamster-Coachman/ Seamstress-clothier/ Musician-instructor/ Mathematics Teacher/ Carpenter-Cabinet-Coffin maker/ Pastor/ Bookkeeper ) No claims
to fame or fortune, or secret trysts in bed chambers! (but, you never know )
My great grandmother told us stories of how she would get hers as a 14 year old girl, behind the kitchen coal stove/oven at night, with a 16 year old
cousin...pretty scandalous stuff today, but, not then. Not in the mid 1800's it wasn't. This would however, make the cousin a rogue!
I suspect this is what most of our real family histories are like...Not copulating monks in the vegetable gardens or amorous knights errant!
