Recently read my family tree!

Impelled to share.

My forefather came from Kingdom of Gwalior,

Then his son created havelis, temple and school,

Then his son extended his Kingdom,

Then one of his sons moved to Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, in search of living,

Then his son created bungalow,

His sons took over,

Where do daughters stand?

Do they belong to same clan or

their existence is nonexistent?

How to find answers?

Those are gone who could answer.
