People On Twitter Are Sharing Their Super Cool Family Stories (25 Tweets)

Are you ready for the latest in Twitter share time? You’d better be, because a Twitter user going by the name “The Irish Atheist” asked a good one—what is “a super-cool thing one of your ancestors/older family members did”?

Most of us have one of those family members who was either a trouble maker, a bit of an eccentric, an activist, or simply didn’t care what anyone else thought about them. Some of the examples given were worthy of the history books, others were just common people doing what they had to do to protect themselves and their families but deserve to be remembered as heroes regardless.

Some built or invented great things that still exist today. Some survived horrible ordeals. A lot of them helped to fight the Nazis in WWII or worked to help the victims. Others were just way, way too horny for their own good. All deserve to be remembered.

Here are some of the best examples of cool family stories from Twitter:
