I joined this site 4 years ago knowing about 2 previous generations on my father's side of the family and only 1 on my mothers side (12 people). In those 4 years I have since discovered 15 generations of people (over 400) going back to1521 on my paternal grandfather's side, 1540 on my paternal grandmothers side, 1786 on my maternal grandmother's side and 1817 on my maternal grandfather's side. Thankyou to everybody who has provided information.
