When Barbara Schmidt posted My Ancestor Score – February 4, 2014 I clipped her ancestor score graphic to Evernote for future reference. This morning I had a few minutes to do my own graphic. I generated an ahnentafel report with full repeats since I know that I have several ancestors whom I descend from twice. Then I manually counted the ancestors being careful to not include a few that are really iffy or “place holders” in my database. I included all generations back and used Excel to do the calculations and turn out this score card:
As for the numbers: I am lucky that half of my ancestry comes from Luxembourg and that the Historial Record Collections for Luxembourg are online.
Biggest Goal: To open the door of my brick wall in generation 6 — the parents of William A. W. DEMPSEY.
