Every Saturday, Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings challenges us to a Saturday Night Genealogy Fun challenge. Although it is now Monday and I am late to the party, this week’s challenge was just too much fun to pass up: What Is Your Ancestor Score? In this challenge, you calculate how complete your genealogy is based on 10 generations, create a chart for those generations, and find our score.
I filled in the below chart by creating an Ahnentafel chart in RootsMagic and counted up each the people in each generation.
|Generation||Relationship||Possible People||Identified People|
|5||2x Great Grandparents||16||16|
|6||3x Great Grandparents||32||29|
|7||4x Great Grandparents||64||49|
|8||5x Great Grandparents||128||69|
|9||6x Great Grandparents||256||51|
|10||7x Great Grandparents||510||5|
I have identified 234 ancestors out of 1,023 possible ancestors. My ancestor score is 23%. Let’s see if I can raise that in 2014! Thanks for the fun challenge, Randy!
