The research of your family history. Searching to find out who your forfathers were and where they were from. Keeping a record or tree of where your genes originated from.



4--grandfather, (your fathers father)
5--grandmother, (your fathers mother)
6--grandfather, (your mothers father)
7--grandmother, (your mothers mother)

8--great grandfather, (your grandfathers father)
9--great grandmother, (your grandfathers mother)
10--great grandfather, (your grandmothers father)
11--great grandmother, (your grandmothers mother)
12--great grandfather, (your grandfathers father)
13--great grandmother, (your grandfathers mother)
14--great grandfather, (your grandmothers father)
15--great grandmother, (your grandmothers mother)

Each time you add a generation the numbers double. Number 1's father is #2, his grandfather is #4 and great grand father is #8. If you want their wives you add one to the number.

You can add as much info to your trees as you like such as Medical History, Birth/Death Dates/Places, Siblings, Children.
An easy way to remember how to start a genealogy chart is to keep the men on all EVEN numbers and the women on all ODD numbers.
