How many people are in your Genealogy Database?

After reading a blog post on Dick Eastman's website (EOGN), I was interested to see where my database sits in comparison. The table originally posted on Mr. Eastman's Blog is slightly different than the one have posted below. Mine is setup to include myself (or yourself) in the calculations. So for generation 1 you have 1 person in the tree, yourself. Generation 2 has 3 individuals in the tree, which represents your 2 parents and yourself for a total of 3. With the third generation you get yourself, your 2 parents, your 4 grandparents for a total of 7 individuals. You get the idea. These numbers only count those individuals from which you descend, so no siblings etc.
|Generation||Number of individuals|
