33 generation tree
« on: Tuesday 02 January 18 04:44 GMT (UK) »
Are there any suggestions as to where to begin a tree full of 33 generations dating back to the Vikings.
I feel looking at a tree gives you more idea of the overall result.
I am proud of myself but I am determined to have a tree of some sort.
Any help appreciated.

Not sure what you're asking.
Are you saying you have a tree containing 33 generations & you want to print it out ?

I was unsure about that too. An application like Family Tree Maker enables you to make and print out a family tree with any amount of generations you like. But a full family tree with 33 generations would contain about ten billion names.

I'm confused too.
 
You initially ask where to begin a tree.

Then you say you are "determined to have a tree."

But you also seem to be claiming to have researched 33 generations, in which case don't you already have a tree?  :-\

I think "looking at a tree" of 33 generations is going to be confusing and complicated no matter how you present it if that is what you are asking. I think many (or most) of us struggle to get to thirteen generations let alone 33 so I can't imagine what a 33 generations tree might look like.  :-X

I don't think it is possible to have a 33 generation tree of European descent but a tree of 33 generations or more could be like this; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_tree_of_Confucius_in_the_main_line_of_descent

A 33 generation tree, if you had all of the ancestors in generation number 33, would have about eight billion names in the earliest generation. Even if you printed it very small, it would be four feet wide and 10,000 miles long.

I am impressed that you have 33 generations.  Have you seen all of the original documentation that took you back that far    :)

Getting a bit off topic I think.
The poster just wants a tree.

There is a topic here about a 15 generation tree with suggestions that may help
