Randy Seaver, over at Genea-Musings, issued a fun challenge on Saturday evening to find out Who’s Number 1000 in the Family Database.

I have Family Tree Maker 16 so I went to VIEW>REPORTS>CUSTOM and created a report that included the name and the Reference Number.  Then I went to FORMAT>SORT REPORT and did a sort on the Reference Number.  So who was my Number 1000? 

No one!  I have a 999 and a 1001 but no 1000!  I think that when I combined my two family files into one and then merged individuals number 1000 got lost in the shuffle!  So my 999th person is Peter Valentine Bushong born June 1832 in Augusta County, Virginia to Abraham Bushong Sr. and Mary Christina Volland.  Peter died on August 19, 1913 in Henry County, Indiana.  He is my 3rd cousin 5 times removed.  The 1001st person is Mary A. Fulvider – the sister-in-law of Peter Valentine Bushong!  I have no birth or death dates for her.  She married Peter’s brother, Samuel Bushong, on February 15, 1858 in Augusta County, Virginia.  She is the wife of my 3rd cousin 5 times removed.
