Fan Chart Challenge

+3 votes
I just tracked one of my ancestors back to the Crusades, which sounded pretty impressive. But my fan chart looks embarrassingly lopsided. My complete set of ancestors only goes back to my 2-great grandparents. Who has a more complete fan chart?

Would be really nice to see your ancestors here on WikiTree, crusades sounds impressive!
Yikes! I don't add anyone to my personal tree unless I have verified the sources myself,  so it doesn't go much further back than about 1820, and even then I have my doubts. A Crusader in my tree makes for an interesting story but not much more than that. Thanks for the comment.
Joyce, there is only 1 tree on WikiTree, and I love the photos you post, but would also love to see profiles added.

Mine, on WikiTree, is only complete back to generation 5. I have six missing ancestors on generation 6.

I don't know whether to be disappointed that so few people answered this question, or relieved that fan charts don't seem very important to most people (I think they are fascinating.) Since there are only 2 answers to this question, I gave a BEST ANSWER star to the person with the most complete set of answers over a single generation. Thank you!
Such charts can be quite useful in organizing ancestry information and seeing the "big picture." Without such charts it would be difficult to see where the gaps are in our research of direct ancestors. Thank you for the star! I'm a surprised more people did not respond.

Mine has four generations, but missing one great grandfather and four great greats.  Many of those traceable back that far have more parents, grandparents,etc.
