              For the date “current date” of 3/16/1612, back then, an Englishman would have written March 6, 1611; a Spaniard  would have written March 16, 1612; and a Dutchman some combination of the two. Before 1752, the year in Great Britain began March 21st, with the month of March being called the 1st month of the year. In 1751, the British calendar was changed to conform to those of Catholic countries in Europe as designated in 1582 under Pope Gregory [hence Gregorian calendar]. Beginning in 1752 the 1st month in Britain was moved to January. Customary references to January, February or March dates before this may be designated 1648-9, 1750/51, …

Ahnentafel Numbers

              To find the father of a person, just multiple their number by 2. To find the mother of a person, multiple their number by 2 and add 1. Many times a person will fill multiple numbers. This also means the same person can appear in multiple generations, although they will be close, depending on which children from which generation intermarry. Only one Ahnentafel number of each individual may be shown. Because the originating generations are not temporally aligned, intermarrying ancestors may also appear out of temporal alignment.
