I have a fun little question about Ancestry Thru Lines.
Which one of your Ancestry Thrulines has the most people in it?
If you mouse over any ancestor in your list of thrulines, something will pop up saying how many dna matches there are.
Of course the ones closer to me or my parents have as little as one. Some further back in the 1700's have in the 30's or 40's. But I have one with 112 DNA matches.
He is Johan Gottleib Ihrich. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Ihrich-1
He was born in 1724 in Hesse, Germany and arrived in America in 1751, where he settled in Virginia. Like many at the time, he had a lot of children and their descendants are now scattered everywhere. He died around 1781
But like a monster in a sci-fi movie the name Ihrich has mutated into many different forms, Arey, Ary, Eary, Arie, etc.
His lineage has been thoroughly researched by a couple of genealogists a few years back and thanks to that, a lot of people can connect directly into him.
Of course many people at that time have tons of descendants, but thanks to some very good Genealogy work, so many of them can be identified.
Which brings me back to my original question. Which of your through lines has the most DNA matches in it?
