I've also wondered about family history of longevity and how it figures into calculations.
My stats are:
- GGF died at 105
- GF died at 87
- F died at 55
- GM died at 97, her brother at 98 (he "RE'd" at 97). F's siblings at 14 and 80ish.
- GF at ~62
- GM (and her sisters) made upper 90's
- M died at 78, her siblings at 90ish.
So, when my dad was my age he'd been dead for 10 years. When my mother was my age she was a 10 year cancer survivor and had another 10 yr or so..
I think, on paternal lines, I just don't know I'm dead (although DW might). On maternal lines, who knows.
How should I tweak the tables to guess a lifespan?
I'm not crazy. Honest, the judge had me tested.
