The table 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 8, 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|

|8||6th great grandparent||1670s to 1740s||7th Cousins||256||135*||52.7%||510||336||65.9%|
|9||7th great grandparent||1650s to 1700s||8th Cousins||512||236*||46.1%||1022||572||56.0%|
|10||8th great grandparent||1590s to 1670s||9th Cousins||1024||401*||39.2%||2046||973||47.6%|
*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: 332 at generation 8, 543 at generation 9, and 882 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):

Thanks for all your work on getting the J Montgomery Seaver Fraud category set up and populated. I added the paragraph with the list of surnames I could find for which he wrote books.
I've deleted all the verbiage from the category I created, leaving only a reference to your category. If there's a way to delete mine completely, that could also be done.
I ran various searches, looking for profiles that needed the category. I found a few that didn't have it and did those, but you had already got most of them. Thank you.
Let me know if there's anything else I should do regarding this fraud.

Luckily, it looks like we won't have to have a category for the company name "American Historical-Genealogical Society" as I didn't find any WT profiles that show the company name and not Seaver's name.
Thanks for helping me get it set up.

Re: he following message from Ellen Smith was posted on the WikiTree profile of Mayke Tymeson.
I believe her LNAB is wrong. The New Netherland family was named Ouderkerk or Ouderkirk -- the "Onder" part looks like a typo or a mistaken reading. marnie hall
