Yeah mine is real interesting when broken down by state.

You can see interesting patterns when you go back farther in time, and look at it from a county-level perspective instead of a state perspective. I would say that about 1/3 of the ancestors I've found resided in the county where I grew up, or in an adjacent county. You'd commonly have a brother or a sister split off and head for Texas, Oklahoma, Kentucky, or Alabama - but my particular line stayed put.

One of these days I am going to map out my family's migrations around South Carolina. When I go far back, the amount of people involved grow exponentially, you lose track of a certain line, and it becomes unmanagable; however, from the small sample size I have, southeast Virginia and eastern North Carolina show up as notable birth/death locations.

Mother- South Carolina
M Grandmother - South Carolina
M GGrandmother - South Carolina
M GGrandfather - South Carolina

M Grandfather - South Carolina
M GGrandmother - South Carolina
M GGrandfather - South Carolina


Father- South Carolina
F Grandmother - South Carolina
F GGrandmother - South Carolina
F GGrandfather - Georgia

F Grandfather - South Carolina
F GGrandmother - South Carolina
F GGrandfather - South Carolina

Your line looks like my wife's...we joke that her family settled this county in 1810, and that she's the only one who's ever left! (We did come back...)
