First one needs to decide on a "Target" starting person.
Most of the Books I have made were for a younger (current generation) person.
I use the following basic format.
Pedigree of target
Ahnentafel of target
Family Group Sheet showing target
FGS for several generations.
Outline Descendant Reports of each oldest of each wanted line
Remember that if you are working from the other end of the chain, then one will want some different reports and charts.
You need to Play with a "Junk" book and see what the different arrangements will give you.
