Wheres the German? I only see English/Scottish/Irish.

Johann George Voltz Fultz?

Greg’s great-grandfather Earl had some German ancestry, but I think Greg likely has other German roots elsewhere on his tree.

He was born in 1727, How many great-grandfather does that make him?

Well, he wasn’t the last German on Earl’s tree (Catherine Barbara Jacke, Felty Valentine Coil, Anna Hesser\heiser).

However, if you’re saying an ancestor in the early 1700s is too distant to be relevant, well, there is some merit to that argument. I personally, typically stop recording ancestors before the year 1600 or the mid 1500s or so, for this website. At least at the moment. Although I personally think the relevance expires more recently than that.
