The Weekly Genealogist Survey
Last week's survey asked about Cape Cod ancestors. 3,741 people answered the survey. More than one answer could be selected. The results are:
•    39%, Yes, at least one of my ancestors lived on Cape Cod.    
•    13%, Yes, at least one of my ancestors lived on Martha's Vineyard.    
•    15%, Yes, at least one of my ancestors lived on Nantucket.    
•    1%, Yes, at least one of my ancestors lived on the Elizabeth Islands.    
•    2%, Yes, at least one of my ancestors lived on another island off Cape Cod.    
•    37%, No, none of my ancestors lived on Cape Cod or the Islands.    
•    19%, I don't know whether any of my ancestors lived on Cape Cod or the Islands.    

This week's survey was prompted by a recent Vita Brevis blog post by editor Scott Steward on centenarians. The survey asks if you have any ancestors who were centenarians. Take the survey now!
