This Ahnentafel chart is to help keep track of information found to date. In order to include both Roy’s and Hattie’s ancestry on the same page, I chose to begin with one of their children as Generation 1.
An Ahnentafel is a list of ancestors for an individual, given in a certain order. The individual is always number 1 on the chart, regardless of gender. His (or her) father is number 2, and his (or her) mother is number 3. His father’s father is number 4, his father’s mother is number 5, his mother’s father is number 6, and his mother’s mother is number 7. To go from one individual to his or her father, double the individual’s number; to find the individual’s mother, double the individual’s number and add 1. For instance, if we were looking for the parents of the person found at number 64, we would scroll down the Ahnentafel until we reached numbers 128 and 129, which would be 64′s parents. Simple, right?
Most genealogy software programs can automatically generate these charts. They’re a rather handy way to summarize information on families, since they allow much more room than a standard pedigree chart would for describing the included individuals’ life events. Because of the limitations of this medium (i.e. a blog), it is not possible to format this chart in the standard way, but this is very close.
Please keep in mind that I have omitted some information to protect the privacy of living individuals. Also, this chart contains only the information I have proven to date, and it may have blank or incomplete sections, which will be filled in as we discuss those individuals or generations.
