Welcome to The Moldenet Saga.
My name is Vagn Molnit and I have decided to find some reason why I exist. I was born in 1954, in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark.
Therefore, on this medium I will go back to the more significant of my ancestors.
I want to tell about their life story. Some will be known by most, others totally unknown, but then they have a life course that can be interesting in the big story.The background
Since the roman Emperor Augustus in Anno Domino Zero commanded that the whole world should be written in the census
ancestors have lived in my family tree for 65 generations.
I often think about who they were, where they came from and how on earth there has been room for so many individuals on this little planet.
During that period of 30 years Jesus Christ lived, no less than 18.446.744.073.709.400.000 people were born, of whom I am a descendant.
Until I was born in the year 1954, all individuals have 2 parents. Nowadays, there can probably be doubts about that claim, but I do not deal with the present time in this medium.
A generation is 30 years old when I count back in time to find my ancestors. Within the 30 years that have passed since their birth, they will all have reproduced them self with a person of the opposite sex. The next generation in my family tree will be born, ready for a new period of 30 years.
Some of my ancestors probably had their children at an earlier age than 30 years, but that only makes the amount of total ancestors even greater.
The calculation is very simple, you can do it with a calculator or even better with a spreadsheet.
Your starting point is yourself, you have two parents who each have 2 parents who each have 2 parents and so on.
You thus have 2 parents, 4 grandparents, 8 great-grandparents and 16 great-great-grandparents.
It can be difficult to see more than 4 generations back and for most it is only clear who the last 2 last generations of one's ancestors are to have a full check on.
The ones I created my spreadsheet I have not imagined that the number exploded that way just by going a few centuries back in time. Suddenly I had 254 ancestors in the family tree. Many of them have no knowledge of and never get it either, but the excavation work was started and then it started to become more relevant anyway.
The medium The Moldenet Saga is a place where things will develop and the stories will be told as I get to them. Some figures in the family tree will quickly turn out to be well-known and accessible historical personalities and it is clear that they will be published first, and along the way the lesser known and completely unknown stories will emerge.
Some scholars believe that we are all descendants of Alexander the Great (356 -323 BC) -
In the same 30 years Alex lived and conquered large parts of the known world, 151,115,727,451,827,000,000,000,000 of my ancestors were born. The chance that Alexander was one of them is most likely.
Feel free to follow the Saga of the Moldenite tribe, and for a small amount (€ 1.00) covering the technical costs I will incur on this medium, I can promise you that interesting stories will emerge about my ancestors.
