Ancestor Count Update March 23, 2017

My family tree keeps growing.  The ancestor count now stands at 5263.

photo-jan-21-9-40-42-am  Is this person knitting her family tree? Makes me think of Madame Defarge in Dickens’ Tale of Two Cities.

I’m actually trying to identify and concentrate on those ancestors who emigrated to America.  That number has increased to 333.  (Even knitting those names would be a big project!)

Alternatively color bar charts come to mind with different colors representing geographic areas of origin, or destination.  Height of each bar representing numbers of people.  What about which generation 6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th?
