Too big

I've been doing genealogy research for way too long. I've used several different software programs over 17 years and have converted the old data from one software program to another, from one version to another.

I've noticed some problems with my data file recently so I do backups on a regular basis. I decided to look at it to see how large it really is.

I have 60,625 people listed in my data file. The earliest record is William de Fulford who was born about 1100.

There are 36 generations of families. There are 6,666 different surnames. There are 20,050 marriage records.

The average life span of the people in my file was 58 years, 2 months.
