HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN FAMILY HISTORY/GENEALOGY? I started with royals and royal genealogy until I found out it was actually possible to research my own ancestors, too.

WHERE DID YOU GET THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR BLOG’S NAME? I already had a Dutch-language genealogy blog, so my English-language genealogy blog had to be about more global topics. Hence Ancestral World.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE THE MOST ABOUT BLOGGING? When I stumble upon an interesting story, I like to write about it.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE NEW FAMILY HISTORY/GENEALOGY BLOGGERS? Don't feel pressured to write every week. Quality is more important than quantity.

WHEN DID YOU BEGIN BLOGGING? January 2013

WHAT ARE 2 OF YOUR MOST POPULAR BLOG POSTS? INCLUDE LINKS SO I CAN SHARE THEM, TOO! I like my most-commented blog posts better than my most-viewed blog posts, so I'll summarize both.

Most viewed blog posts:
1. Anneke Jans and the Webber Controversy
2. Surname Saturday – The most common surnames in Europe

Most commented blog posts:
1. The Kleinjan family and their American branch

2. 1816, "The Year Without a Summer"


TELL US 5 FUN FACTS ABOUT YOURSELF! IT MAY BE YOUR LIKES, DISLIKES, A FEW OF YOUR FAVORITE THINGS, OR A FEW FUN FACTS ABOUT YOUR LIFE. 

- I like to bicycle while passing castles and manor houses.
- I'm very fond of dark chocolate.
- I used to be a female software engineer.
- I like the tiny birds in the garden.

IF YOU COULD LEARN TO DO ANYTHING, WHAT WOULD IT BE? I would love to learn more about Portuguese and Swedish Royals.
