How far back can you trace your family tree?

At least once line of my family can be traced back for 300 years. Of course, when I was born, the family history could only be documented for 240 years.

From memory, I can go back to my great-grandparents on one side and my gandparents on the other, But I'm sure there's a fancy family tree somewhere that I could look at.

I can go back as far as my grandparents. Beyond that, I'd have to search records in China in Chinese. That's more trouble than I want to go to. My father says that all Yees can be traced back to the original Yee. He is a 33rd-generation Yee. He gave me a family tree in Chinese that traces his descent down from the 13th generation. It also shows the descent from the 1st to the 7th generation, but he wrote in English that he couldn't find the 8th through 12th generations.

I can trace back to my great-great-grandparents. I've a second cousin who became a Mormon, and I am sure she has traced that line further. My husband's family is documented from their arrival in this country in the 1620s.

My father's family has been traced back to 1547 in Germany. My maternal grandparents came over from Poland in the early 20th century, but we don't really know when.
