This list is about medieval genealogy, that is, before 1500.
Very few lines get before 1500 out of nobility.
In my case (my Beauregard line that changed to Beauregard alias Jarret
circa 1835 and to Jarret alone in 1642), I went back to 1471 from a
not noble line, but thanks to land rented from the local noble.
But very few lines are like this one, which mean usually enough
records survived to time and wars in Europe, and even existed
(church records before 1600 are very casual).
On the other side, I descend from Philippe II king of France. And
in other lines, I have other noble ancestry. So, I can't avoid
associating nobility to medieval ancestry.
