Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Lifespans of Your Third Great-Grandparents

It's Saturday Night - 
time for more Genealogy Fun! 



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


1)  We each have 32 3rd great grandparents.  How did their birth and death years vary?  How long were their lifespans?  


2)  For this week, please list your 32 third 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 32 great-great grandparents with us in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this blog post, or on Facebook or Google+.  Please leave a link to your information as a comment to this post.

Note:  Only list those you know about.  If you don't know many of them, do your 16 2nd great-grandparents.
