In Legacy Family Tree I ran an Ancestor report starting with myself and then counted each generation and then added my information to a table in Excel. At some point I am going to do one for my husbands side and see where I stand with his side. Right now I think this will be an interesting topic to come back to in 6 months or even a year from now to see how I have progressed.
Saturday Night Genealogy fun came from Gena-Musings. You can go to Randy's blog to see his numbers too.
Your mission, should you decide to accept it (and I hope more of you do than participated in the last several SNGF challenges), is to:
2) Create a table similar to Crista's second table, and fill it in however you can (you could create an Ahnentafel (Ancestor Name) list and count the number in each generation, or use some other method). Tell us how you calculated the numbers.
3) Show us your table, and calculate your "Ancestral Score" - what is your percentage of known names to possible names (1,023 for 10 generations).
4) For extra credit (or more SNGF), do more generations and add them to your chart.
5) Post your table, and your "Ancestor Score," on your own blog, in a comment to this post, or in a Facebook Status post or Google+ Stream post.
