I have been extracting one small village from 1550-1925 in Wuerttemberg. What surprised me the most was the fact that I was related to almost 95 percent of the entire population down through the ages. I use Legacy so it lets me know if and how I am related to any one person in my file. This was only one ggg grandmother's family and I calculated I had about 15,000 blood relatives (albeit many distant cousins). I can only imagine how many "relatives" we all would have if we were able to track every branch. In theory I always suspected we were all connected but this extraction project proved it for me.
