Descendant Migration Charts for Ebenezer Perry Carlisle Webster and Iver Iverson

I recently watched Legacy Family Tree's QuickTip video called "Creating a Migration Chart." I was intrigued. I hadn't made this kind of chart before. I have used Legacy Family Tree for a number of years and still have a lot to learn about the many features it offers.

I decided to make a migration chart for my maternal 2nd great-grandfather, Ebenezer Perry Carlisle Webster.

As you can see, this is quite an interesting chart. Not only are U.S. states listed, but the countries of Brazil and Mexico are listed as well. That's because Ebenezer's son, Watson (Frederick) Emory Webster, is my great-grandfather. You may know him as "The Traveling Dentist" here on my blog. He was born in Ohio, but traveled to Mexico where he married my great-grandmother, Esther Matus Villatoro. They then traveled to and settled in Brazil. Of course, settling in Brazil didn't mean he stopped traveling. But, that's another story.

Here's the migration chart for my paternal 2nd great-grandfather, Iver Iverson.

Iver was born in Norway on 2 August 1827 in Marteplads, Nes, Buskerud, Norway. He immigrated to the United States in April of 1858 and settled in Minnesota. He served in the United States Civil War in the 34th and 21st Iowa Infantries.

From this chart I can see that the majority of Iver's 146 descendants were born in Minnesota.
