Numbering System

Here's a quick introduction for the fan who asked on our Facebook page.

Typically, one numbers in the following fashion on an ahnentafel chart:

1) You
2) Your father
3) Your mother
4) Your father's father
5) Your father's mother
6) Your mother's father
7) Your mother's mother
8) Your father's father's father
9) Your father's father's mother
10) Your father's mother's father
11) Your father's mother's mother
12) Your mother's father's father
13) Your mother's father's mother
14) Your mother's mother's father
15) Your mother's mother's mother
and so it goes

for me:

1) Michael John Neill

3) my mom--still living

That's all I'm going to type-these are from memory. I can't remember the middle name for Marie Bruns (59), but it's either Gerdes or Ubben. The last two didn't have middle names (actually patronyms, but that's another story).
