It’s Saturday Night, so let’s have a little fun. This was a post from Ancestry.com a while ago. I found it interesting and something I had not done yet.
What is it you ask?
Counting your ancestors by generation
Here is the chart.
Going back to our 7th Great Grandparents we have a possible 1,023 people.
Here are my numbers next to Crista Cowen’s.
Those 4 brick walls in my family, on both sides sure do make a difference, don’t they? Once I hit 3rd great grandparents, that’s where my trouble begins. This means I still have LOTS of work to do. Only 74 out of a possible 1,023! Oh my!
How about you? How do your numbers compare?
Off I go to try to find some leads.

I look forward to reading your comments. If you have any connection to the people mentioned in this blog, please let me know. I write about mine and my husband's ancestors and would welcome new information or meeting a new cousin or two. Thanks for visiting and come back soon.
