|I have been excitedly testing the new
American & European Family Forest Millennium

generation Ancestor View (without siblings, and
with Cousin Smart de-selected) for Prince Andrew
of Greece (pin# 5608) reached the first major
According to the counters within the new
version 3.0 of Family Explorer, it filled in
975,750 boxes on the chart with ancestors of
Prince Andrew, and the space required to print
this chart would be 4 pages wide by 29,259 pages

Prince Philip, and the space required to print
this chart would be 4 pages wide by 33,110 pages
high. This chart would reach from sea level to
more than 1,300 feet above the highest peak on
the planet, Mt. Everest!

that are more than five miles high. What should
one expect to find on pedigree charts with more
than one million boxes filled in?
