On my father’s side I still have 5 lines that are unconnected to the greater tree.  Hines, Almon, Green, Charles (all 4th great grandparents) and Dennis (2nd great).  

I have 13 lines that connect to all of you.  

Wilson, Davis, Cherry, Hill, Stout, Dougherty, Dunbar, Rice, Stamps, Tremain, Roy, Phipps, Feree

Will work on mother’s side later.  

How many lines have you connected and how many left to go?

I'm not sure I understand you question. Since you are connected to the main tree, wouldn't anyone related to you also be connected?

Tsk. laugh You seem to have missed Medlock, Huffman, Smith, Pate, Barrington, McClendon, Howell, Clanton, Passmore, Ricksand ... a dozen others, therefore bypassing ME and MY blood kin. laugh 

Sorry if my explanation was not clear.  

We have 2 parents, 4 grandparents, 8 gg, 16 2nd gg, 32 3rd gg and so on.  

Once you find a connection back in their line then of course the rest of the descendants are connected in as well.  But sometimes it can take a while to find that link.  So on my father’s side. I have been able to connect quite a few but some lines are still unconnected (i.e. brick walls)
ah, so sorry about that

I'm connected through a marriage of my great-great grandaunt. Her husband is a descendant of Martin Luther. And I am connected through my 3x cousin 5x removed. Her parents emigrated to Texas in 1848. And I am connected through one relative who comes from the neighbor town of my ancestor's town and went to Illinois.
