One thing to consider is that we normally think of meeting our g-g-grandparents when they are really old. What if we met them when they are in their 20s? And same thing with the g-g-grandkids. Meet them in their 20s, not when they are five years old.
That would be a trip. Have both your g-g-grandparents in their 20s and your g-g-grandkids in their 20s in the same room at the same time. Who would you rather talk to?
I also try to frame this question in terms of what's more important to me. Who I am. Or my accomplishments. Meeting your g-g-grandparents tends to be more about who you are. While your g-g-grandkids tends to be more about your accomplishments. (btw, I still don't have an asnwer to this question, these are all sides of the question that I'm considering).
This is an easy one, since I don't have kids! Even if I did, I'd lean towards looking at the past, learning things that have been forgotten.
Don't forget, a person has 16 great great grandparents. And in my case, it would be unlikely more than two would be able to speak English. That would be a big, babbling group!
What a great point, Becky! Everyone has 16 great great grandparents. I bet alot of those great great grandparents would be surprised that eventually down the road they would become related. Now wouldn't that be interesting--to find out who would eventually become a fellow great great grandparent with you.
Considering the fact that I have zero desire to have any children, I'm not in the race to have any grandchildren, or great grandchildren and I certainly wouldn't want to meet the little rugrats if they did somehow crawl out of the woodwork. On the other hand, I was adopted, so I think it would be grand, pardon the pun, to meet my great great grandparents. But not before my parents.
i was going to first say g-g-grandchildren, but then i decided g-g-grandparents because i would like to learn some stuff about my past.
