After completing an "ancestor audit" and writing about it here: Have you audited your ancestors?, I received a lot of requests for the code of My Ancestors Research Statistics. It is my modification to the original template created by (and found on his profile) Campbell Braddock. I added in some extra columns:

My Ancestors Research Statistics

118th Great Grandparent960 (-64)*29 (3%)27 (93%)17 (67%)0 (0%)
  • Total number of possible ancestors reduced due to pedigree collapse.

And here is the code for it:

This is great, I am so going to copy;)

I presume that you manually sum the numbers during your audit? (Ie there is no magic report already etc)

Ok I still can't get the "code" to work. I am mathematically challenged. Still love this idea.

Judy, have you pasted it to your profile or page yet?
posted by SJ Baty
No I have yet to paste it. Not very computer wise with any of this.

Just copy all the code, open your profile to edit, and paste it where you want it.
posted by SJ Baty
I cannot get the chart to paste on my profile so I guess that's why I cannot get the code to work? Or I am as computer illiterate as I thought I was.

Thanks for trying to help me though

Thank you for this. I’m new here so it’s a great time to start the audit and to try to have as many profiles as possible genealogically defined (I had to look up ‘genealogically defined’ ;))
posted by Rebecca (Holtz) Reed
What an awesome idea. I will give it a try.
posted by Judy (Garris) Mauldin

Thank you for this chart. I'm going to work on doing my ancestor audit - my project for 2021. Best wishes Maureen

Glad to hear it Maureen! Please let me know if you run into any glitches or need any assistance!
