Randy - are you using a tool to number your ancestors? And if so does it number the blank ancestors in case you find them in the future so that you don't end up renumbering the family tree?

Thanks

Yes, the numbers are true ahnentafel numbers. If I don't have a name, there is a number for that ancestor already reserved.

Of course, I sometimes make misteaks.
