" but I discovered that when you have a bunch of people in your tree, i.e. aunts, uncles, cousins, inlaws"

Siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. are not direct ancestors.

Direct ancestral lines grow exponentially, the number of direct ancestors doubles (abt) every 25 years.

10 generations = 1012 direct ancestors
8 generations = 265 direct ancestors
7 generations = 128 direct ancestors
6 generations = 64 direct ancestors
5 generations = 32 direct ancestors
4 generations = 16 direct ancestors
3 generations = 8 = great grandparents
2 generations = 4 = grandparents
1 generations = 2 = parents
