The World  Drogo de Monte-acuto's Coat of Arms
It is recommended that you print this instruction page for future reference and as a handout for others who might help you in acquiring information.
The blank `Family Member Record Form' is designed to conveniently fit one page, but you might have to reset the font size in your browser. If the form prints over one page, set the font one size lower, and try again. Most browsers have about 5 font size choices, and are usually configured to about mid-range. Generally one setting, or two at the most, will allow the form to print on one page. For browsers, we recommend for best all around use, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator/Communicator. I have worked with a few other browsers that are so different as to be totally unpredictable, and there are "some" printers that won't follow the rules. In the cases where you just can't get the form to print on one page, you may have to resort to "cut and paste," real cut and paste, with scissors and paste (or tape). Then you can photocopy your master.
If you have a laser, or relatively high speed printer, it might be convenient to print as many copies of this form as you need, otherwise, photocopying a good quality printed master might be easier.

1. Name of Family Member
  a. Prefix
    Mr., Mrs., Dr., etc.
  b. First Name
  c. Middle Name
  d. Extra Name
    There is an occasional third or extra name
  e. Last Name
    Female Montague children, married or unmarried, will use Montague at the top of the form. Their spouses names appear in the Family Information section below. Subsequent generations of the children of the distaff side will use their family name on the form.
  f. Suffix
    Jr., III, Sr., etc.
  g. Title
    Baron, Duke, Earl of Sandwich, etc.
  h. Index#
    This is a control number assigned to everyone who has an entry in the system. For the moment leave this blank. We will assign this number unless you have your family branch numbers assigned. In that case we will use your numbers until we have a junction of branches at which time we will be renumbered for overall linkage and clarity.
  i. AFN#
    This Ancestral File Number is a control number assigned to individuals by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. They have a large worldwide field team constantly collecting genealogical data. Their archives are probably the largest in the world. There are usually several churches in most areas that have CD-ROM files containing information that you can only imagine. They will be most happy to show you how to use their resources. Please take some disk with you on which to copy your information.
  j. Gender
  k. Common Ancestor Name
    This one might be a little tricky. There are several Montague genealogy books about different branches of the family around the world. When they were written Index# 1 was chosen as the top of the family tree. Now what we have are duplicate uses of #1. To keep separation of these branches until we have branch completion and closure I am going to continue the use of the initial Index#'s. The branches will be identified by an Index# suffix. Example; 1047-rm1614. This identifies the individual as an ancestor of Richard Montague, b. 1614. Then there is -pm1603, Peter Montague, b. 1603. Others will be used as they are identified. In your case, your common ancestor will be the most distant back that you can trace, ie., -xxyyyy.
