This family group sheet lists the parents and first child of the parents to give you an idea of how I recorded the information. I used an Excel spreadsheet, you can use it or a Microsoft Word document if that is easier for you. The actual family group sheet I have is much longer because it includes the information on both his marriages and all eighteen of his children!
