The challenge for tonight from Randy
What are your own d'Aboville numbers for your four lines of your grandparents (starting with the first known person in the paternal line)? Your genealogy software program may be able to help you with this [Family tree Maker 2011, RootsMagic 4 and Legacy Family Tree 7 can, but Family Tree Maker 16 and earlier cannot].
If I have figured this right mine are:
From Richard Iles 22.214.171.124.6.2
From Josiah Dudley 126.96.36.199
From Thomas Love 188.8.131.52.2
From James Johnston 184.108.40.206.5.2
I used Brother's Keeper to figure this out.
I created a Descendant Report - Indented Report. In the options I chose Henry - Brother's Keeper gives several options for Henry. The first one for them is actually the d'Aboville number format.
For my Stiver files, I put the documents in the binders according to this number.
