Hello ATSers,

I've recently done some research through genealogical platforms and have come to find out I am a direct descendent of French nobility, specifically a long line of counts, barons and viscounts. I can trace my ancestry back to the 1500s. And though there is a connection possibly with being one of the oldest noble lines in French nobility as the name of my ancestors and the House is the same though the records are lost before 1500, but there is a wikipedia article about this House. This is my father's side of the family I am talking about. What are some common conspiracies associated with French nobility and blue bloods of Europe?

Dear Sir or Madam,
May I fight by your side if you decide to expand your territory, and, if we win, can I have a piece of land adequate to house my family, goods, and livestock. I thank thee in advance, and am ready to take up arms (I've got two of them) in your cause.

Rex Deus? If not look them up, or the mysteries of Montsegur, or the Cathars, or King Philip's hatred and destruction of the Templars, it really depends what family you mean and what area of france at what time, are we talking about Southern France? The Languedoc? In which case there have been so many 'occult' or 'heretic' goings on since the 12th century that yes, you're family may have been involved at some point, northern france and paris etc wasn't a hot bed for occult activity til 1900-1920's, not to the same extent anyway, but the south has always been interesting… . If you want to know anymore from me on any of these things Id be happy to share, if you want to know more specifically you can ask me here or pm me or whatever if you dont want to discussyour family namw to publicly, hope this helps.

I have just found this symbol/placard Sir (or Madam). May I inquire if it will affect our task of surmounting the lands of those we wish to conquer? Do the rabble intend to uphold these beliefs in perpetua, or can we undermine their dastardly chanting and singing and carrying on? Land, my lord (or lady), land is what we seek, and to make the other gentry quake in their boots and hand over their treasures and wenches to us, the victors, the proud victorious, the ones who will again raise the cry of the barons over land, women, and song!


But seriously, your lineage is pretty cool. And something to be proud of.

How come no one is ever related to a # scooper or ditch digger?


Probably am. But not really intresting to talk about.

Thing is you trace back far enough everyone is likely to find someone intresting,

I also have the painter john constable in my family and a SS colonel my family wont talk about.

Everyone ignores those members of the family when drawing up the family tree and sticks them in 8 point text while someone slightly famous get 20 point text and a fancy text box so everyone can feel a bit more superior

Congratulations! You have qualified to become a member of the Priory of Sion. If you are not interested in restoring a direct descendant of Jesus Christ to the French throne, you may wish to contact our friends in Britain, who support the descendants of James Stuart. (Both the Priory and the Jacobites are actual ongoing conspiracies.)

Good for you!

A couple of years ago I tried ancestry.com's free two weeks trial to help me determine how much Native American I had from my mother's side.

Well it turned out that the relative in question was not from the Blackfoot tribe, but a white woman from New Jersey. However, I started to get into the family tree and have been researching it and adding to it ever since. Even though ancestry.com wants a paid service after two weeks, you can do independent research and continue to add to the tree you made there.

It surprised me to learn that my mother's side goes back to the founding of Jamestown and my father's back to the Mayflower. Also, I never realized how much Scottish/Irish blood my mother's side has. The Maclean clan, goes back to the Isle of Man and even further back. I got back to the Viking berserker Ivar "The Boneless" Ragnarsson King of Dublin & Northumberland who died about 873AD, before I started giving up because of all the Viking names. Plus the further back you go, the sketcher the information gets. Also, when you get to some countries, the language barrier is a stopper. My great grandparents (father's mother's parents) are Czech and although I have some information before they came to the states, I haven't gotten any further back with them. There is a dead end on the family surname in Germany, although I'm sure someone in the family knows more about them in the old country.

Anyway I think its great that you decided to find out about your pedigree and ancestors.

Für Elise is German and means "For Elise"
What you mean is "Fleur-de-lis"

Eh, Russian minor nobility back in my line... and it gets me exactly nada, nor should it.

Just because an ancestor sucked up or was a bigger bully than most isn't a reason to celebrate... but it IS interesting in a "where did my dna come from" way.

Aye, Russian nobility here too. Must be something in the water (and by water, I mean vodka).

Exciting news for you, many names can be looked up and to discover the CT roots and bloodlines. Your family happened to escape with their heads most probably to the Americas. Keep looking, keep digging.
