I was in my database, updating the fourteenth baptism in a particular family, and I thought, hmm, I wonder how big is the biggest family in my tree? And never one to shy away from data, I spent some time in the Statistics tab of my family tree software to see what other
I use Legacy Family Tree 8.0. Here is where I find the Statistics tab:
Longest female lifespan: 102 years, 1 month, 10 days
Longest male lifespan: 99 years, 11 months, 5 days
Average female lifespan: 59 years, 7 months, 27 days
Average male lifespan: 59 years, 2 months, 22 days
Families with 10 or more children: 49

Ignace Blanchette and Julie Lampron of Ste-Monique in Quebec had 17 known children, including two sets of twins, between 1846-1876. Ignace is my first cousin 5 times removed. Julie has my sympathy.

Not sure I even know a Dorothy in real life!
