Some Family Information

At This Site


HOW MANY ANCESTERS DO YOU HAVE?

"Every person has two immediate parents, four ancestors in the second degree, eight in the third, and so the pedigree ascends, doubling at every step, till, in the twentieth (twenty-first*) generation, he has no fewer than 1,048,576 ancestors; and in the thirtieth, (thirty-first,*) 1,073,741,824, a number which exceeds the present population of the globe."

The above statement would be correct, provided there had been no intermarriages among a person's ancestors to the 21st and 31 generations.
But, a single intermarriage in the fourth geneation, may make the number of ancestors in the next, and all succeeding generations, an eighth less; while one in the third generation may reduce it a quarter.  Where intermarriages occur frequently, as they generally do among families that have long been located in one neighborhood, the number of one's ancesters is lessened very materially thereby.
If we should carry our calculation back to our first parents, what an infinite number of ancestors, in that generation, we should be supposed to have had; and yet, there really would be but two of them.

  *These generations are the twenty-first and thirty-first, as usually reckoned, counting the person himself the first generation, his parents the second, and so on; but they are really the twentieth and thirtieth generations of one's ancesters. "
(From an article stuck in the book, EARLY SETTLERS OF ESSEX AND OLD NORFOLK, ca. 1852, author unknown)


Alot of the families posted are not any direct line of my husband or myself, but names I kept finding over and over again
associated with my ancestors in one way or another. I started collecting info on them hoping it would lead
to more information about my ancestors (sometimes it worked!).
Since I had all this info on some families, thought I would post it in case others needed it.
Most of the lines are not as diligently researched as my own however and there are lots of gaps -
still a clue is a clue for someone who is looking!
