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 188.8.131.52.6.2
From Josiah Dudley 184.108.40.206
From Thomas Love 220.127.116.11.2
From James Johnston 18.104.22.168.5.2
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.
