The Largest Handwritten Family Tree in the World

The Largest Handwritten Family Tree in the World

(enlightening music) – [Narrator] The River
Ganges in Haridwar, India, is a holy pilgrimage site
for millions of Hindus and is visited by hundreds of
thousands of people each year. (crowd cheering) It’s also home to the largest
handwritten family tree in the world. (enlightening music) For centuries, a sect of
priests known as Pandits have updated and maintained
comprehensive paper records on each visitor. – [Narrator] Each of
the records are sorted by family lineage and
include reports of births, deaths and other important events, many of which span hundreds of years. – [Narrator] While talks
are underway to digitize these records, the Pandits take great care to preserve each delicate
page in hopes of maintaining family histories for generations to come.

    I remember getting mine written in when my grandparents died. I saw the names of 5 generations before me (they had older ones also). I felt really bad after seeing the condition of their house.

    How could they possibly find a name in those gigantic note????

  • rosemariewildflower1 says:

    Being Jamaican seeing this brought tears to my eyes. As the descendant of former slaves, I can only dream of having this kind of information. Sure, I can do one of those ancestry tests and get a questionably accurate idea of where my ancestors came from. However, the lost ability to attach names to my genealogy (past my great grandparents) is irreplaceable.

  • Tony Bobay says:

    Tippmann Family has a book written about our American ancestory. My grandma was the oldest of 18 children who each had an average of 9, so the law of exponential return is on our side. We're still only in the ~1000 of second cousins range, but being one of the largest families in American history, we may be there in a few years.

    नमस्कार, मेरा नाम "जेथ्रो सदरलैंड-स्टीफेंसन" [“Jethro Sutherland-Stephenson”] (जन्म 1992), का बेटा "एंड्रयू सदरलैंड" [“Andrew Sutherland”] (जन्म 1961) और "देबोराह स्टीफेंसन" [“Deborah Stephenson”] (जन्म 1967 – मृत्यु 2017), का और 2018 से मैंने अपने प्यारे भारतीय पति से शादी की है "सुधीर शर्मा सदरलैंड-स्टीफेंसन" [“Sudhir Sharma Sutherland-Stephenson”] (जन्म 1996).
