How many ancestors do you have


Leave the archive and display this page in the standard design: How many generations of ancestors have you completely recorded with data?


Moin, dear friends of the polls,

Since I am a terribly “curious fellow”, things are going to be tough today: I have two surveys for you right away, the reason being very simple: I want to know two similar things from you, and since I need more than 10 possible answers, they come up two surveys.

Why is?

Here I would like to know from you up to which generation you fully recorded your ancestors with date of birth or baptism, date of marriage and date of death or burial including the respective places. It's all about direct ancestors.

You can find the other survey here (http://forum.ahnenforschung.net/showthread.php?t=24625).

Thank you for your participation!

Friedrich

Hello Friedrich,
http: //www.smiliemania.de/smilie132/00000909.gif ... you have to count generations again. : roll:

Hi Michael,

You will still be able to count ...: wink:

Friedrich

Hello everybody,

for me there is not so much to count :(. I only have the really complete data up to and including my great-grandparents.

Hello,

if I take my children as starting persons, I have the complete data up to the great-great-grandparents.

I am still looking for some branches for future generations.
But due to some illegitimate births, all Kekule numbers will probably never be consistently occupied.
On the other hand, I am already in the 11th generation of the branches that come from my hometown, but still not quite at the end of the church registers.
So there are still some archive visits to be made!

Best regards
Karin

Hello,

so:

I have my father's male line 13 generations back, with the 13th Sixtus Herzog I only have one date of death and one year of birth
unfortunately no date (1640).

I have my father's female line until 1588, 16 generations, exiles from Großnondorf in Austria.

I'm on the maternal side right now, unfortunately difficult and I'm still with my great-grandparents ...

the paternal side of my mother I should go a long way next week
create. Because they have been living in the same place and house for x generations. So hopefully next week I will march into the parish without a large family tree and come out with a long family tree: p

Well, unfortunately it's over with my great-grandparents. I have all the data from them in full. I often miss the death dates of my great-great-grandparents.

By the way: Could it be that some people misunderstand the survey? You can hardly have ALL data for ALL lines in the 10th generation (over 7x great-grandparents). From a purely historical point of view, it is hardly possible to have traced any lines back to the 17th century. That's not even possible with the nobility.

I really only have the great grandparents completely.
It's a bit puzzling because a lot of documents hang between registry offices and archives and I can't get any information from any at the moment.

But it will be. It just takes its time.

Up to my four-time great-grandparents I have it completely and then it starts with the NN: roll: especially the women are so difficult to determine ...

greetings
Eva

Hello Friedrich,

So now I do it like Karin and start with my children: D (then I'll have a generation more: p). Everything is then complete up to their great-great-grandparents.
I still have my father's line 6 generations further, but usually the dates of death are missing and the last two generations often only have names. :(

Speaking of which, Friedrich, how far have you got everything completely ???
We are curious too! : D

I don't know if I got that right now: But you mean the entire branches? I have now voted for great-great-grandparents because all branches are really complete (assuming my children are my starting point). Individual branches go (completely) much further. Only with names and incomplete data can I get up to 13xUr-grandparents in my husband's paternal branch.

Hello Friedrich,

what does that look like in your family tree:?

Complete, including the supporting documents? Then I would only have the whole series of my grandparents left.
Because some of my great-grandparents come from East Prussia. Unfortunately, at the time of the baptisms there was no longer any KB from the village, go and go ...
:( :( :(
Best wishes,
Karen

Moin Christine,

At the moment it is complete for me up to my great-great-grandparents with all data. In the generation of three great-grandparents I have a very stupid gap, which I fear that it will take a very big coincidence to close it (a needle in a haystack, see here (http://forum.ahnenforschung.net/showthread. php? t = 22580)).

But you should never give up hope.

Friedrich

Hi Daniel
Why should it be impossible to get all the data?
I've got all the lines in places where the church records are received
remained and were partly run from 1630. Besides, they mostly were
Ackerer and therefore in one place for generations.

So now I do it like Karin and start with my children: D (then I'll have a generation more: p).

I have to start with my children, even if I have worked out my husband's family tree, I can't just ignore it!

Best regards
Karin

I don't know if I got that right now: But you mean the entire branches?

At least that's how I understand it. What is recorded by name can be voted on in the other survey, but this is about dates of birth, marriage and death (unless, fortunately, it has not yet arrived) with first and last names of all lines, like me see that. :)

Of course it is theoretically possible, Anika. :)

But this is all about all the lines and all the data. If you have all ancestors from the same place, then it may be possible to complete the family tree up to the 17th century (by name!). But again and again there is a woman who came from outside, or you simply can't find the wedding because the pastor was just shabby.

If someone should actually have followed all the data completely up to the 18th century, I would like to see his family tree. :)

Good morning,

I will clarify you again regarding this survey (what else?: wink :) on:

It's about direct ancestors, no side lines, and the complete dates of birth, christening, death, burial and marriage!

The generation up to which all data and names are available should be specified. I.e. the generations before must of course also be complete!

All clarity eliminated?

Friedrich

Hello,
just made my little cross or my crosses.
With my line, the maternal side comes up to 1800 with all the dates.
paternal side only up to grandfather, since church books do not exist.
My wife's side looks better, until 1746 all data on the maternal side are complete.
See you parents. until 1880 all data on paternal side complete.
To great grandparents.
Greetings Joachim

paternal side only up to grandfather, since church books do not exist.

Then you have to click on "Grandparents" according to the survey, no matter how far you are with the other lines. ;)

Hello Christine,

no, no - not like that. If you start from your children, all of your husband's information must also be available. Are you that far?

LG Ursula

Yes, what kind of frustrating polls are you doing here? Do you have to make it so clearly and unambiguously before my eyes that - after long research on one side - I have completely failed and am still complete with my grandparents? 8o
So have to give an answer that I could have given you soooo years ago? : evil:
And specifically only one generation ahead? : help:

Can you take responsibility for this and sleep peacefully? I can't do that and now I will go through files again, look for clues, see where I can look for my grandpa's parents ... You are mean.

Good night (if you can)

Christel

Moin Christel,

So first of all: I'm going to do this survey! So please only complain to me! : cry:

Then: I couldn't have known that you could have given this answer years ago. :O

I also keep my fingers crossed for you that you will soon be able to retrace your grandfather's line. : wink:

Please, please, don't hit anymore, I didn't mean to hurt you! :) I just wanted to know how far others are. Purely informative. I didn't advertise a competition and I didn't want to frustrate people!

Friedrich

You will still be able to count ...: wink:
Hello Friedrich,
I could count, but as long as I don't get any answers to inquiries about immigrant ancestors from Franconia http://schildersmilies.de/schilder/vschwoer.gif, I don't even need to start.
Can you answer for that and sleep peacefully?

Hi Daniel
I am really ready in all lines. But as I said, the church registers are everywhere, and if someone came from "outside" then only from the neighboring community.

Well, Anika, congratulations on such successful research. :)

Hi Daniel
Thank you, but sometimes I also wish for ancestors who are not so easy to find.
But now I also have a newcomer who was born in 1700.

I also think it's nice that, for example, my grandmother's grandparents come from every corner of Germany: Wiesbaden, Schleswig-Holstein, Thuringia, Silesia. I'll be a generation further in Bavaria, Rhineland-Palatinate, Hamburg and Hesse. My grandma herself was born in southern Brandenburg.

In principle, I have ancestors from almost every federal state, so you can get around a lot, but it also costs more. ;)

Hello everybody ! I have 6 generations without my children and grandchildren. The woman's date of death is missing for the great-grandparents, and the woman's date of death is also missing for her ancestors. Then their forefathers the entire date of life of the woman and with the forefathers also the birth and death dates of the woman. These are my ancestors who emigrated to Ruma in today's Serbia. The forefather comes from Bavaria and married the woman in Ruma. That must have been after 1770. I do not know his death dates. Greetings Maria

Hello,
you made me curious and I checked it out right away.
If I start with my children, it goes back four generations completely.
But it would easily come back another 3 generations if it weren't for Schleßien. I have no idea how to start this. Can you give me advice.
I would love to find someone in the same parish.
Namely in Niederhermsdorf on the Oder / Neisse. Was there a neighboring village there called Bilitz? Today the villages are all called different. Where can I get information from this area.

Hello Friedrich,
I thought the survey was already done.
As a result of fallen girls, at some point I don't have complete generations.
It looks pretty good with individuals. What counts as receipt?
Do you really expect me to roll through the document books in the 14th century?
There are enough books on this by different people. I prefer to dig recently.
greeting
Gerhard

Hello Friedrich
For the answer I once picked out my own line.
It looks a lot better on the side lines. But that depends on the status of the people. In the case of the lower folk, it ends relatively early. The noble ones have always watched to keep their property, bequeath it, etc. This means that these lines contain much more information. These secondary lines are also my direct ancestors and my children - grin.

Have fun evaluating
Gerhard

Hello Friedrich, I would also like to write my contribution to it. Working backwards from my children, I come from my Thrums in Moßbach / Pahnstangen to 10 generations. Lg. Karla

So and with my Michel / Michaelis I come to 11 generations. The first Georg Michel, born in Rochlitz in 1653, was born in Wiederau b in 1731. Leipzig passed away. But I will soon get more documents that will hopefully expand my line of ancestors. The other two lines are making slow progress. Lg. Karla

Dear Karla,

it is not about how many generations you have recorded the furthest, but up to which generation you have all ancestors with all data.

Example:
When you have the parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents complete with dates; If one or more dates are missing for the great-great-grandparents, you can get to the great-grandparents, regardless of whether you come back ten or more generations in individual lines.

Friedrich

Hello Friedrich,

on my maternal side I have a line up to 9-fold great-grandparents, with the second maternal line I have now found the connection probably up to 10-fold great-grandparents.

I'm not quite ready on the paternal side, but it doesn't matter. Maybe still to come

Hello Viviane,
read through again what Friedrich wrote in front of you: wink :. Karla has the same problem as you, this is about something else: wink:

For me it is the case that I recorded all data up to my great-grandparents (4th generation), so I have all 8 people of this generation complete. Unfortunately, the great-great-grandparents, the next generation, are still missing a few dates of birth and death, but I have recorded all of the 16 people by name.

So I find it very interesting how far you can get and
without wanting to put myself in the foreground, I'm in a line up
to the 21st generation.

Now for the survey.
I find Friedrich very well done :)

I have completely recorded my great-great-grandparents.
As for me, the affection for the older ones tends to decrease.
Of course this is also remembered in prayer, but the great-great-grandparents are still
something really great.
You can usually find photos and sometimes you get information from grandparents or other contemporary witnesses.

Since I haven't been researching so intensively for so long ... hmmmm ... think about it ... it varies ... in one part I may have come back 300 years through the Mormon database (so about 4 or 5-times Urs ...): wink: ... but that's not really secured yet ... and in one branch of grandma's biological father it looks very poor, I only know his name and have no data yet ... Grandma grew up with foster parents ... the data of the birth mother ... that is, my great-grandma ... I was able to find last week * cheers * ... otherwise I am mostly with many great-great-grandparents (i.e. 2 times Urs .. 5th generation) advanced ... but first by name, partly with the first specific data ... now the registry records are slowly coming to an end and I have to go to the KBs ... let's see how I proceed ... well As I said, about this survey ... I'm sure I got it up to my grandparents ... and one great grandpa also the great-grandparents for sure ... let's see what else can be found in the near future ...I hope and practice patience (which unfortunately is not my strength) ...: roll :: D

GLG; Olli

I still look pretty skinny in this survey ... :-)
Got so many holes where I don't even know where to start filling.
In any case, I'm just getting as far as my grandparents. :-)
Ok, as a tiny excuse I should mention that I haven't been researching ancestors for so long. Superficial family history for almost ten years. But very precise genealogy according to rules and regulations has only been used for 3 years. And there are all kinds of gaps in my clan.
