Baldwins' descendants are from England, my male line ancestors are descended from Richard Forrester, one of Baldiwn V (or IV I am forgetting)'s children and a sibling of Matilda the Maid. Because the family moved to England there is plenty of evidence on the descent, especially since the Family stayed royalty until the 1700s.

>tfw you could have been super rich living in a castle and mansion if your 10th Great Uncle hadn't been posthumously declared bankrupt
