My Family Tree

Being a student of history, I have always wanted to trace back my family line to discover more about where I come from. I have been able to trace my last name “Gavit” all the way back to 1440 when the name was “Gavey.” Below is a crude sort of family tree I am working on. I hope to be able to give it more oomph as time goes by.
