Last week’s survey asked about pedigree collapse in your ancestry. We asked, within twelve generations, the number of multiple descents you had from an ancestor or ancestral couple. 49% of respondents had 1 to 5 multiple lines. The lowest percentage, 2%, was the group with 20 to 25 multiple lines of descent. Complete results are:


49%, 1 to 5 multiple lines

17%, 5 to 10 multiple lines

14%, No multiple lines within 12 generations

9%, 10 to 15 multiple lines

5%, more than 26 multiple lines

4%, 15 to 20 multiple lines

2%, 20 to 25 multiple lines


Two weeks ago we asked about your genealogical interests in the Mid-Atlantic states. This week we ask about the Midwest. Take the survey now!
