Saturday (Sunday Afternoon) Night Genealogy Fun - Lifespans



Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:

1)  We each have 16 great-great grandparents.  How did their birth and death years vary?  How long were their lifespans?

2)  For this week, please list your 16 great-great grandparents, their birth year, their death year, and their lifespan in years.  You can do it in plain text, in a table or spreadsheet, or in a graph of some sort.

3)  Share your information about your 16 great-great grandparents with us in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this blog post, or on Facebook or Google+.  If you write your own blog post, please leave a link as a comment to this post.

I didn't get to this until Sunday afternoon, but here are my 16 great-grandparents with their lifespans. The blue are my paternal great-grandparents and the green are for my maternal.

More than half of my ancestors (9 out of 16) lived past 70 years, which is pretty good. The average lifespan was 70 years.
