This wikitable is an example of a table of known ancestors. It shows how much of a person's ancestry is known for ten generations. The idea was introduced in the G2G forums by Peter Roberts in this discussion.

A new version was created with some small changes in the table entries, but mostly the width of the headings and text entries is adjusted so the table will always fit in the available space on a WikiTree profile (it shouldn't ever spill over the right margin of the column).

The Ancestors report has been modified and is no longer fit for creating this table. See https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/709290/possible-ancestors-number-wikitree-ancestors-report-changed

Oh wait, I sincerely believed you can add something like [Table_of_known_ancestors] and this would display.

I am willing to help, who do I work with?

So far on Ancestry.com I have traced my family tree back to the 300's BC and I don't know how to transfer all this information to WikiTree. It would take ages to enter it all in seperatlely. Help please.
