The table (table format at Space:Table of Known Ancestors) below summarizes the extent of the information on my ancestry that is included in Wikitree. For the ten generations previous to mine, it shows the number of possible ancestors, the number of these ancestors who are currently identified/documented included in WikiTree, and the percentage of the possible ancestors who are identified here. Cumulative (overall) totals are also provided. Generations 9 and 10 are not up to date.
"Identified" ancestors include some with unknown last names at birth. It also includes some questionable identifications and people that I have not researched.
|ANCESTORS BY GENERATION||OVERALL ANCESTORS (CUMULATIVE)|
|Gen. #||Direct Relation to Self||Dates of Birth||Matches||#||# Identified in WikiTree||% Identified in WikiTree||Total #||Total # Identified||Total % Identified|

|9||7th great grandparent||1650s to 1700s||8th Cousins||512||236*||46.1%||1022||580||56.8%|
|10||8th great grandparent||1590s to 1670s||9th Cousins||1024||401*||39.2%||2046||981||47.9%|
*There are several duplicates (people who appear on multiple branches of the tree) in these generations (see "Endogamy" section below for a list). These people are counted more than once in the numbers for both possible ancestors and identified ancestors. Cumulative numbers of distinct individuals in my WikiTree-documented ancestry are: 340 at generation 8, 560 at generation 9, and 914 at generation 10.
See this page.
Autosomal DNA matching with me may be complicated by the number of ancestors who are represented in my lineage more than once. These distant ancestors' DNA may be somewhat amplified in my DNA. Also, if the same ancestor appears on different branches of my family tree, that may reduce the chance of triangulating a particular DNA segment to a particular common ancestor.
Identified ancestors appearing in multiple lines of my ancestry include (this list is not yet complete):

I am in NZ. I was unaware, until I took an Ancestry DNA test, that I had many DNA connections in this part of the world, Surrey, UK, the Channel Islands and NZ. I am the end of this NZ line I am interested in legitimately establishing our shared history. Many thanks for your reply, Kind regards, Christopher Howell.
