an ancestor list without using a chart. An Ahnentafel starts with
a person, who is number 1, and works back listing ancestors by generation.
Each ancestor is numbered and the numbers double for each generation.
any person who's number is P:
P's father is numbered P*2.
P's mother is numbered (P*2)+1.

grandfather is #4, paternal grandmother is #5, etc.

information about the ancestors of a person. Its narrative form,
however, allows more information to be included. The report is produced
in paragraph style, using sentence structures.
