What are Ancestor and Descendant books?

Sometimes also referred to as Ahnentafel and Register Reports, the Ancestor and Descendant Books produce a narrative report (in a book format for publishing) of successive generations of ancestors or descendants for an individual. Many options are available to customize the appearance and content of the reports. You can also print a sample page with an explanation of the numbers and symbols.
