1) How old is your father now, or how old would he be if he had lived? Divide this number by 4 and round the number off to a whole number. This is your "roulette number."
My Dad was born in 1919 so he would now be 90 years of age. 90 divided by 4 is 22 1/2 - I'll take 22 as my roulette number.
2) Use your pedigree charts or your family tree genealogy software program to find the person with that number in your ahnentafel. Who is that person?
On our family's chart number 22 is my husband's grandfather, Ernest James Gillespie.
3) Tell us three facts about that person with the "roulette number."
Ernest James Gillespie lived from 1889-1958.
Ernest James Gillespie lived in Rosebery, Bowral and Arcadia, NSW.
Ernest James Gillespie was a milk carter, dairy farmer and horse trainer.
4) Write about it in a blog post on your own blog, in a Facebook note or comment, or as a comment on this blog post.
5) If you do not have a person's name for your "roulette number" then spin the wheel again - pick your mother, or yourself, a favorite aunt or cousin, or even your children!
