My Ma-in-law counts 5 generations since 1922 but if I look at my lot (Jean and I and our Children and G'children)) I can trace 9 generations on the paternal side taking us back to 1757 and 13 on the maternal taking us back to 1635
5 20th century generations in 95 years (av 19 years)
9 since 18th c in 261 years (average 29 years)
13 since 17th c in 383 years (average 29.5 years)
Good when the stats seem to prove the live longer/procreate faster rule!! You can do anything with stats!!
