Wordless Wednesday: The Other Side of the Story

On Sunday, I posted my "Heritage Pie" breaking down the birthplaces of my 16 great-great-grandparents.  I thought it was interesting how 'colorful' my chart was with my ancestors being born all over.  But, that was only one side of the story.  Here is the rest:
The above pie shows where my great-great-grandparents died.  While the pie is a lot less varied, it tells me one big thing: this generation of ancestors were VERY mobile.  They came to Michigan from Ohio, England and Wales and they came to California from Indiana, Illinois, New Jersey, New Brunswick and Kentucky.  The only ones who stayed put?  My Italian 2nd greats.
