Re: Counting Generations

Here's an easier way to do it. Start with yourself and count up until you reach your first ancestor to live (NOT born) in SF.

In this example, pretend your great-grandpa moved to SF from Detroit. Or Guangdong. Or County Cork:

1. You
2. Your dad/mom
3. Your grandfather/grandmother
4. Your great-grandfather who originally moved to the City.

Voila! Your 4th generation San Franciscan.
