6 Generation Birth Chart

I've seen this popping up all over the genealogy blog world and on facebook and decided to play along.  From what I can tell J. Paul Hawthorne got the ball rolling and many gena peeps followed along.  You can find some great instructions here and the Google Docs template.

My chart is very boring!  In 6 generations there is no one outside of Pennsylvania.{at least none that I can find...there are a few elusive ancestors still hiding.} What?!?!

Purple = Pennsylvania
Grey = Unknown Ancestor 

What does your ancestor birth place chart look like?
