Yes, I am an adventist. I do know about those documented then. I'm sorry I should have been more specific. I meant from how far back to today or at least to the last few generations. For instance to know that someones gg grandfather did his tree as far back as the 1300;s or whatever. thank you for helping me learn this info. I have not been very slow at all this genealogy stuff. Now I have been addicted to researching it for about 3 years. I started in 2005, I think. thanx again.
