Effective genealogical writing is based on standardized formats and numbering systems. Learn to understand the numbers you see in published genealogies and how to present your own findings in recognized formats. Discussion includes basic genealogical numbering conventions, including the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) Register system, National Genealogical Society (NGS) Quarterly system, Sosa-Stradonitz (Ahnentafel) System; and how to identify European ancestors.
