Curious how many grandparents you have? Ancestry did the math for you. In general, one generation is about 25 years - from the birth of a parent to the birth of a child. It's also generally accepted that the length of a generation in earlier periods of history was closer to 20 years when humans mated younger & life expectancies were shorter. #genealogy #parents #family #heritage #roots

HMS Alert in pack ice during the Arctic Expedition of 1876. The British Arctic Expedition of 1875-1876, led by Sir George Strong Nares, was sent by the British Admiralty to attempt to reach the North Pole via Smith Sound. Two ships, HMS Alert and HMS Discovery sailed from Portsmouth on 29 May 1875. Although the expedition failed to reach the North Pole, the coasts of Greenland and Ellesmere Island were extensively explored and large amounts of scientific data were collected.
