Beatitudes of a Family Genealogist

                  

Blessed are the great-grandfathers, who saved
     embarkation and citizenship papers, for they tell
     WHEN they came.

Blessed are the great-grandmothers, who hoarded
     newspaper clippings and old letters, for they tell
     the STORY of their time.

Blessed are the grandfathers, who filled every legal
     document, for these provide the PROOF.

Blessed are the grandmothers, who preserved family
     Bibles and diaries, for these are our HERITAGE.

Blessed are fathers, who elect officials that answer letters 
     of inquiry, for--to some--the ONLY LINK to the past.

Blessed are mothers, who relate family TRADITIONS
     and LEGENDS to the family, for one of her
     children will surely remember.

Blessed are relatives, who fill in family sheets with extra
     data, for to them we owe our FAMILY HISTORY.

Blessed is any family, whose members strive for the
     PRESERVATION of RECORDS, for this is a
     labor of love.

Blessed are the children who will never say,
     "Grandma, you told that old story twice today."

-- Wilma Mauk

Genealogy is amazing, just pick up your calculator and calculate the amount of ancestors you have when you go 24 generations back.

Here you see how to calculate that:

your parents 2  (1 generation back) = 2^1

+ your grand parents 4 (2 generations back) = 2^2

+ your grand grand parents = 8 (3 generations back) = 2^3

+ your g.g.g parents = 16 (4 generations back) = 2^4

and then when you come 24 generations back, amount of ancestors:

2^1 + 2^2 + 2^3 + 2^4 + 2^5 + 2^6 + 2^7 + 2^8 + 2^9 + 2^10 + 2^11 + 2^12 + 2^13 + 2^14 + 2^15 + 2^16 + 2^17 + 2^18 + 2^19 + 2^20 + 2^21 + 2^22 + 2^23 + 2^24 = 33 554 430

and that is just your ancestors when we add the numbers of siblings and their children to those? The conclusion....we are all related.

A computer is perfect to keep all the informations available so i created AgetoAgeSqlite and here is some screnshots from it.

Have a nice day!
