Depending on who you talk to a generation can be 20 -30 years assuming you use 20 there are 5 generations per 100 years, since 1492 was 524 years ago it could be 25-26 generations if you use 30 it would be a little over 17 generations, but the number of generations has little to do with determining ones genealogy. It is possible that your DNA would contain DNA from an ancestor from that period.
