A little Genealogy Fun: Roll the Ancestor Dice!

Having trouble picking who to work on researching in your genealogy today?  Do you often work on easier areas of your family tree and neglect the harder to research ancestors?  Use the Random Number Generator to pick the ancestor you post about today!

8191 is the last ancestor of your 10th great grandparents in an Ahnentafel list.   If you aren't quite that brave you could use a Max Number of 4095 (9th great grandparents) or 2047 (8th great grandparents) or 1023. (7th great grandparents).

After you get your random number go to that person in  your Ahnentafel, and that is the ancestor you research.
