Saturday Night Genealogy Fun: How Many Generations Did Your Parents or Grandparents Know?

Although I have to count the generations, I already know which of my family members will win Randy Seaver’s SNGF challenge this week – How many generations did your parents or grandparents know?

Here we go:

a) My father, George Michael Sabo (1926-1985), knew:
1. His grandfather, Stephen Kucharik (aka Sabo) (1855-1933)
2. His father, George Sabo (1893-1936)
3. Dad was an only child, but he knew his first cousins.
4. His two children

b) My mother, Doris Priscilla Adams (1923-2008), knew:
1. Her great grandmother, Sarah Moriah Crouse Coleman (1833-1930)
2. Her grandfather, Hartwell Thomas Coleman (1868-1938)
3. Her mother, Hazel Ethel Coleman Adams (1901-1995)
4. Her two siblings
5. Her two children
6. Her grandson

c) My paternal grandfather, George Sabo (1893-1936), knew:
1. His father, Stephen Kucharik (aka Sabo) (1855-1933)
2. His four siblings
3. His son, George Michael Sabo (1926-1985)

1. Her grandfather, John Scerbak (1836-1916)
2. Her father, Michael Scerbak (1868-1932)
3. Her six siblings
4. Her son, George Michael Sabo (1926-1985)
5. Her grandchildren

e) My maternal grandfather, Vernon Tarbox Adams (1899-1968), knew:
1. His grandfather, Calvin Segee Adams (1843-1921)
2. His father, Charles Edwin Adams (1877-1922)
3. He was an only child, but knew many first cousins.
4. His three children
5. His four grandchildren

f) My maternal grandmother, Hazel Ethel Coleman Adams (1901-1995), knew:
1. Her grandmother, Sarah Moriah Crouse Coleman (1833-1930)
2. Her father, Hartwell Thomas Coleman (1868-1938)
