How Register Reports Work

The number in the first column identifies an individual as a "parent". The number in the 3rd column identifies a person as a "child". If a "+" appears in the 2nd column, the child identified in the 3rd column will appear in the 1st column later in the report as a parent with children. If a "+" is not present, there will be no further mention of the individual.

Unlike Ahnentafel numbers, these numbers are arbitrary and good only for the report in which you see them. Any additions or deletions of names anywhere in the report will change all subsequent numbers. It is not a good idea to try to identify a person by referring to their number shown in a given register report, since these numbers are very likely to vary in other similar reports.

The register reports used on this web page are minimal by necessity. These reports are capable of (1) showing lineage back to the point of origin, (2) showing notes or contents of related text files, (3) showing source endnotes or footnotes, and (3) having an alpha index of all individuals.

Using Your Browser to Search Register Reports

The instructions here apply to Netscape. Other browsers will work similarly.

To search for a name or number, click on "Edit", then "Find". You can jump immediately to search by using Control-F.

It probably is a good idea to search for a single word and to repeat the search until the desired name is found.

When searching for a number, follow it with a period.

The default is to search forward. This is useful when you see the number of a person listed as a child (3rd column) and you would like to see where that person is listed as a parent (1st column). You may also select "search up" to search backward for where given names or numbers appear. This is useful when you see a person listed as a parent (1st column) and you would like to see where the person is listed as a child (3rd column).
