Had a little Saturday Night Genealogy Fun!

 

So occasionally I do a little genealogy while Hubby entertains himself with football, and this Saturday night was no exception.  So I decided to join in some Saturday Night Genealogy Fun with Randy Seaver. The Fun was to figure out how many of your ancestors you knew in the first ten generations.  So I figured mine. Using The Master Genealogist and a focus group, I added on generation at a time, until I got to the tenth generation:

So I was all like “Hey, I got 24%.”

Then Hubby was all like, “Hey, 19%, not bad!”

Then the kids were all like, “Hey 37%, take that old folks!

 

Generation Relationship Number of Possible ancestors Total Known Percentage
1 Each Child 1 1 100.00%
2 Us 2 2 100.00%
3 GrandParents 4 4 100.00%
4 Great Grandparents 8 8 100.00%
5 2nd Great 16 16 100.00%
6 3rd Great 32 32 100.00%
7 4th Great 64 60 93.75%
8 5th Great 128 85 66.41%
9 6th Great 256 83 32.42%
10 7th Great 512 86 16.80%
  Total Ancestors 1023 377 36.85%

Yeah, that was fun!
