Ancestors in a narrative document

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


JennyT Report 5 Feb 2018 12:02

I am trying to make a narrative document of my ancestors but cannot make my mind up which order to put them in. For instance If I start with my Dad and put his dad on the next page, do I then go up to the previous generations through all the males, or after Dad's dad do I go to Dad's mum? But who comes next then? Or would it be better to do all grandparents then all great grandparents, and so on? Has anyone else done such a document?
I have 2 thick files at the moment - one of my Dad's side and one for my mother's.
