Genealogy Research: How Far Back?

How many generations have you found on your Father's side? Mother's side?

I have known people who said they went all the way back to Adam.

Wow, that is detailed.

On my father's side I go back 8 generations following the men. Following his mother I go back 4.

On my mother's side I only go back 4 on both sides.

There is a lot of work on both sides of the family because the men knew how to get around if you know what I mean ::)

Yeah, I know about the getting around stuff.  One part of my tree doesn't fork. ;D  My great-grandmother's second husband was her first cousin.  Not my blood line though, I am from the first marriage (well my grandmother was :) )

I love genealogy but haven't spent much time on it this past year.  I think it is probably time to start up again though.

You should see the Caribbean, so many intermarriages and relationships that it would take the whole genealogical force in Salt Lake City to find just 3 or four generations on one family.

Genealogy Research How Back

Preface: All of this work was done by my mother's sisters, and my father's mother...

Mother's family has been traced to Ladies in Waiting to Queens of England in the 1600's

I am related to that famous signer of the Constitution, John Hancock (he had no children, but we descend from his brother).

Father's family we trace to the French Heugenots, also in the 1600s, who fled to America by way of Amsterdam.  There is a city in New Jersey with our family name, and a museum of some infamy in New York. :)  New Paltz?  Albany?  I forget...

My son's father's family was traced by an aunt of his, going back to Germany in the 1800s, where they sold their noble title for passage on a boat to America.

My daughter's father's family has no idea of how to make a family tree.  The one grandmother has some information on her father coming from Portugal but won't share it with me.  The grandfather has no idea what the name of his own grandfather was.  But they think they are Norwegian.  I'm working on census records to find things, but it's really difficult to start with next to nothing.

I can't imagine, JB, having so many "offshoots" from the tree :)  It's hard enough finding one line!

Farseer, you are so blessed to have it all available for you. It gives you the chance to go left and right on the charts (cousins and uncles/aunts, etc.) and areas that have not been explored.

I've been able to take the pedigree (don't have all children) for 13 or 14 generations on some lines.  But then on others I've gotten about 4 generations and everyone disappears.  

It's the stories you find that are interesting.  My favorite was the ancestor that drew his weapon on General Washington - he was on sentry duty and Washington didn't have the password.  They were going to hang him but Washington said no and commended him for doing his job.  Of course I also am also descended from a deserter of the same war. :-/
