    Hard to say how many family members I have who are alive. Both my mom and dad came from large family, and I have 7 brothers and a sister. We aren't very close (emotionally or geographically). I have loads and loads of nieces, nephews, and cousins I've never met.

    But my dad was raised Mormon (it didn't "take" in him :biggrin:), so his side of the family is really into genealogy. They have the family traced back hundreds of years, to the 12th century! But I don't know how reliable the information is. (In fact I strongly suspect it's bogus but so it goes.)
