Have you ever thought seriously how your family tree intersects with History? We know that four of the Mommy's sixteen great-great grandparents came from Sweden. We also know that several of the same generation on the Daddy's side came from Germany. Those people were from the 1800s, but 200 years before, their great-great grandparents may have been fighting each other or side by side in the Thirty Years' War with Gustafus, Wallenstein and the like.

Above is a clip including all the events of history taking place around the world during the Thirty Years' War in Europe. This is a fascinating website from http://www.hyperhistory.com that delves as deep into varying topics as you'd like to go. It's interesting to see this cross-section and realize how big the World is. Of course, Australia and Tasmania were always there, it's just that some western folk discovered them.
