    I have been using this system for a couple of years now and really like it. My Legacy genealogy program has the option to use Mary Hill’s system as well. I would recommend using it to help organize and give a visual reminder of what family line a person is in.

    When I started out researching a dozen years ago, I looked at a few ways to organize and chose the method you describe. It works really well. It makes it easy to locate the direct line ancestor but allows you to group related surnames logically. It’s really clear what goes where so you don’t have to spned time deciding, time you can spend looking for elusive ancestors.
