Each Saturday, Randy Seaver issues a challenge on his GenaMusings blog.
This week's challenge is:

1)  We each have 32 3rd great-grandparents.  How did their birth and death years vary?  How long were their lifespans?  

2)  For this week, please list your 32 third great-grandparents, their birth year, their death year, and their lifespan in years.  You can do it in plain text, in a table or spreadsheet, or in a graph of some sort.

Here are the ones I have information on. The years depict their age at their death.

The average lifespan of the 25 great-great-grandparents I have birth and death information on is 64.  They range from 36-93.
The woman's average lifespan is 62 years and the men's 66.

Two of my 3rd great-grandparents remain unknown and 5 have incomplete information for their birth and deaths. Looks like I have some researching to do!

What is the average lifespan of your 3rd great grandparents? 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Helping you climb your family tree,
