More About The Nine Generations Chart May 3, 2017

In reality my 9 Generations Chart has a few gaps in the tree, starting with Generation 7 where there are 10 ancestors missing.

Generation 7 should have 64 ancestors   but there are only 54 identified

 

Generation 1 – Me

Generation 2 – My Parents

Generation 3 – My Grandparents   4 people

Generation 4 – My Great Grandparents  8 people

Generation 5 – My Great Great Grandparents  16 people

Generation 6 – My 3X Great Grandparents  32 people

Generation 7 – My 4X Great Grandparents   64 people

Generation 8 – My 5X Great Grandparents   128 people

Generation 9 – My 6X Great Grandparents   256 people

Ideally there should be 511 people on the tree

I searched again for the missing parents of Agnes Lee.  Agnes Lee is in Generation 6. No luck in finding her missing parents in Generation 7.  So that means I’m also missing her 4 grandparents and 8 great grandparents in generations 8 and 9.  Things compound rapidly.
