Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Make an Ahnentafel Report

 Calling all Genea-Musings Fans:

It's Saturday Night again -

Time for some more Genealogy Fun!!

Here is your assignment, should you decide to accept it (you ARE reading this, so I assume that you really want to play along - cue the Mission Impossible music!):

1)  Have you made an ahnentafel report 
("name table" in German) recently?  Show us yours!  How did you do it?  Which program did you use?

2)  Write your own blog post, or leave a comment on this post, or write something on Facebook.

Here's mine:

I used RootsMagic 9 (Publish > All Reports and Charts > Ahnentafel > chose myself, 20 generations) to make this list of my ancestors through 20 generations.

Here is the first page: 
And the second page:

There are 203 pages to this ahnentafel list.  It includes the ancestors for whom I have a name and/or birth or death data.

RootsMagic does not provide a way to identify how many people are in each generation.  I wish they did!  Other programs do.  I usually count the names in each generation.  I haven't done that yet today.
