Ancestor Score 2016: 76,4% of the 10th generation

Inspired by the Ancestor Score of the blogs "Connecting The Worlds" and "Heritage, Inheritance, & Legacy", I here present my own. The total number of my ancestors - starting with my parents (generation 2) - is 3884 !! 
Geneanet defines the ancestor score as "comparing the number of possible ancestors with the number of identified ancestors on a 10-generation report". My ancestor score at generation 10 = 76,4%.

(*) The Bandwidth of a generation is determined by the earliest and latest known birth or baptism date within that generation.

The decrease in ancestors in generation 7 is due to cousins marrying cousins and brick-wall ancestor Jacobus Vos in Sprang-Capelle.
The most common surnames of my ancestors are Van Driel, Spruijt, Oerlemans and Bos.
