Ancestor


Your ancestors are the individuals from whom you are descended. For example, your parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and so on are your ancestors. (In general, we don't call our parents and grandparents our "ancestors." When we talk about ancestors, we are normally referring to more distant, deceased relatives.)
