Every now and then the Ancestor Score Card makes it rounds in the genealogy blogs. This is a chart that compares the possible number of ancestors in each generation to the number you have identified.
Last month, I saw a couple of blog posts focusing on the genealogists Ancestor Score Card. Today I want to share mine.
I am very happy with the progress I have made in my family tree. It will be really interesting to see when I finally crack the 100% level at the 6th generation. The four ancestors I need to identify are the parents of James Dempsey and Mary Ann O’Neil. Haha! This should be fun to find in Scotland.
Filling out this chart is not my goal for my genealogy research. I enjoy filling out the lives of each ancestor with stories. I think this is a fun exercise to take stock of the work done so far.
