My 2014 Genealogy Score....9% or 97/1024...What's yours?

Last year, at the end of December, I checked my genealogy score. (You can read the original post: What's my number?)

At the end of 2013, here was my score:


2/2 parents (100%)
4/4 grandparents (100%)
8/8 great grandparents (100%)
16/16 greatX2 grandparents (100%)
32/32 greatX3 grandparents (100%)
51/64 greatX4 grandparents (79.69%)
37/128 greatX5 grandparents (28.91%)
33/256 greatX6 grandparents (12.89%)
34/512 greatX7 grandparents (6.64%)
58/1024 greatX8 grandparents (5.66%)

Here is my current score:


2/2 parents (100%)
4/4 grandparents (100%)
8/8 great grandparents (100%)
16/16 greatX2 grandparents (100%)
32/32 greatX3 grandparents (100%)
51/64 greatX4 grandparents (80%)
41/128 greatX5 grandparents (32%)
37/256 greatX6 grandparents (14%)
55/512 greatX7 grandparents  (11%)
97/1024 greatX8 grandparents  (9%)

For those people who prefer to score according to the Total of All Generations method, I have 343/2046 (17%).

Overall, I am happy with the progress I made this year, but there is still a ton of more work to do.  I fear making progress from this point on will be very difficult, as I have pretty much hit "brickwalls" on all the existing known ancestors.  I am hoping that my extensive DNA testing will help me with some of those.

So, what was your 2014 genealogy score ?
