The incessant march of time continues to take a huge toll on our extended family of thousands of cousins.  

Sadly, in the years that have elapsed since July 1, 2000, when we started counting with precision, an alarming number of Minerd- Minard- Miner- Minor cousins and spouses has passed away. We extend our deepest sympathy to their loved ones.

 

On average, we lose
a cousin or spouse
every 3.00 days

The data suggest that, on average, we lose a cousin or their spouse every 3.25 days. No epidemic illness is at work. Rather, it's the normal cycle of life, reflecting the family's enormous headcount, aging of the baby boom generation and the backfilling of past years' data as we learn more. It's a staggering toll, but certainly is not comprehensive, as we have no true way of knowing the status of every single branch of the clan.

Only a small fraction of the total names at death were some form of M-M-M-M -- less than one percent. Not surprisingly, everyone else carried some other, different name -- more than 99 percent.  This is because, as the family has grown to an immense population, the proportion of cousins who descend from females doubles with each succeeding generation, and with that the number of other names.
