And 2^33 = 8,589,934,592 ancestors.  We should probably all just start addressing each other as cousin.

Hopefully Annette will to return to clarify what she wants to do with her 33 generation tree. The thread is now on page four and we are none the wiser.

We might be able to offer some suggestions when we have more information.  :)

I just experimented with my tree which has one line going back 16 generations to c1490.  No Viking, no nobility, but plenty of bastards (of both sorts).

To print this would take 41 A4 sheets of paper and to display entirely connected would need about 2.5m2 or 27.5ft2

To All,

My apologies' for having given you all such a time with my ancestors.

 I must sound very stupid but at 83 years I am afraid my words have come out very  confusing.

I intend reading each of your posts completely and I appreciate each and every one.
I realize that a tree is impractical and my files which hold every ones lives are more than enough.

I guess a page with good old Rollo at the top sounded inviting.
As far as authenticity of each name, every one joins with the previous little soul.

I will write again after reading your posts.
Thankyou for your patience and time,

Regards to all,     Annette

The assumption is that all the ancestors in your tree are distinct. What is happening is repetition of ancestors, that is, the same ancestors appearing over and over again in a pedigree. Repetition usually appears within the first ten generations, and the further back one goes, the more repetition one finds. It is called "Pedigree Collapse" http://www.familytreemagazine.com/article/what-is-pedigree-collapse.

Hello Stan,
An interesting article.   I have decided  not to list all the siblings way back although the ones attached to those Kings and their mistresses made eyebrow raising reading. 
Thankyou for your imput.

Oh Annette

It looks like we're related...  :o :o :o

Rollo is also in the tree that I've been told that I'm related to!  What about 'Skull-splitter', does he appear in your tree?!

I have quite a modest family tree and the other year I thought I'd like to make my version of the Bayeux Tapestry to put on show running along the wall of my sitting room.  I visioned 50 and/or100 years in each section with fancy dividers and maybe include some images for backgrounds.  You can buy long rolls of paper with varying widths, but thought I would hand draw an initial draft on the back of a roll of excess wallpaper that I had.  Sad to say, my calligraphy was atrocious and I dropped the idea.   However, now that the subject has been brought up again I've surfed and seen some possibilities with submitting several sheets of my tree to printers who specialise in printing long rolls.  Plus I've seen one tablecloth manufacturer that specialises in custom print table tops.

Hello Rena,

What a great idea!   My calligraphy is woeful so something else had to be done.   With so many little folk I am definitely doing just a direct - with no siblings tree in small printing and I will be happy.

Your ideas are super and I would love to hear how it all turns out.  The table cloth sounds exciting too.
Good for you!

Thankyou for your post.
