It’s time for my Ancestor Score! Short and sweet.
This is my sixth year doing the Ancestor Score on Valentine’s Day. I first learned this way of keeping tabs on the progress in my genealogy research from Barbara Schmidt in 2014.
I almost didn’t bother with doing this post as the numbers have barely changed.
My Ancestor Score
I didn’t add any new ancestors to my family tree since last Valentine’s Day. Those 3rd great-grandparents Mr. and Mrs. DEMPSEY are still missing. The man who made Levina DOSS my 5th great-grandmother is an absentee. Mr. and Mrs. COOLEY are also unaccounted for. Mr. TREADWAY who I’ve been including in the count has never been written about here since he has not been proven. Earlier this week a DNA match turned up and points to the possibility of his being the father of my Sarah Ann TREADWAY. If I get it sorted out this year I should be able to add several generations to the TREADWAY branch.
My Children’s Ancestor Score
My children’s ancestor score increased by only one – an 8th great-grandparent.
Stats for the previous four years are included in both tables above. The posts from previous years can be found here:
