In studying genealogy, I found this fascinating:
We have in our lineage:
16 GREAT-GREAT GRANDPARENTS
32 GREAT-GREAT-GREAT GRANDPARENTS
64 GREAT-GREAT-GREAT-GREAT GRANDPARENTS
In 8 generations there are 256 GREATS.
20 generations = 1,048,576 GREATS
My Great-Grandfather fought in the Civil War. I never knew him. His son, my Grandfather, died when I was one year old.
My brothers have Great-Grandchildren! I know that people are living longer but it still amazes me that my brothers have Great-Grandchildren!
My husband has Great-Great nieces and nephews!
I guess you are OLDER THAN DIRT!
