Example Report: Ahnentafel Report

  This report shows the ancestors, by generation, of the starting person. To derive the father of any person on the chart, multiply the number of the person (found in the left margin) by two (2). If you then add one (1) more to the number for the father you will get the number of the mother.

+ means that this branch continues into the next generation. The characters to the left of some of the birth and death years are: a = ante or before, p = post or after, ca = circa or about, and ? means questionable but probable.
