I'm not sure to have well understood your question. My english isn't fluent :o(
But (if it's your question) there is no limit : you can insert into your database so many generations as you want.
You can insert the son of the son of the son of the....
For each person, you have just to insert the ID of her father and her mother (gen_People).
For each person, you have just to insert her ID and the ID of her spouse (gen_Marry)
This package isn't a complete application but only classes and example files. You have to write your own scripts to insert into your database as you want.
I'm currently translating all my scripts into english before leaving them on my website for download.

I'm on Brazil... My city is Belo Horizonte.
The way I think on use it is very simple... the differences will be that I will use only one parent per person (inform only the father, for example). And I need to count the number of descendants of a specific father until his 4th generation (or 5th, or 6th, it could be variable).
I think on make possible to count and "classifie" on different types of persons (number of female descendents, or male). On my context I could use it for different pay plans of my clientes.

Oi, Brasil !
OK. I'm glad for you :o) I've written a little script to list (and eventually count) all the father ancestry or mother ancestry for one person.
In my database, when I select my daughter all the known father-ancestry are listed with 8 generations. Knowing earlier ancestors is difficult : many documents have been burnt, but I continue :o). But technically it's possible...
I've just add a picture in the package : the MCD of the database (MCD is a french acronym which means Conceptual Model of Data, a map or a diagram based on entity-relation model)
