Re: The Grail & the 12 Tribes

I (no, my husband) once did the calculations back to the 6th century.  The
number was incredibly large, equalling  more people than had ever lived on
the earth combined.   This points out that as you go backwards, you
duplicate ancestors many times over so realistically do not have so many as
that calculated.
   Probably many of us can trace most of our ancestry to places in the
British Isles (or any place) where we will lose the trail in some village
but that pool of ancestors in those places shrinks as we go backwards.
Thus we end up being related many times to the same people.
    Also there might be many people in those villages that we are not
related to but as the centuries proceed, their lines die out.
