6th gens
« on: Sunday 03 May 20 08:46 BST (UK) »
I have --- at last count   86 6 x great grandparents in my tree :)  Well Now I have counted again and it is 124  --- don't tell me I cannot even add up now... !!!

They wouldn't be in there without documentation -- so they are all 97% positive :)  maybe even 98%   ha ha...   

I went through them yesterday to attempt to check and double check and yes ... they seem to be correct..
The only problem is in those days -- son was named after father until there were 10 Roberts in the same Village born within days of each other.. and MARY's  even worse...   SO   I hope they are all correct... :)

Great work Xin,
I only have 21 and three halves (first name only on the grannies) and it has taken me over a decade just to get that far. Having two problem great grandfathers (one illegitimate and one who appear to have reinvented himself in his forties) means there is a lot of work still to do to find some of them and on others I am hindered by lack of paper trail for Non-Conformists around the England/Scotland border. Unfortunately irregular Border Marriages are not always documented and not all Presbyterian baptism registers have made their way to the archives.
