Our ancestors often used the following naming procedure when picking out a
name for a new child. This explains why certain names are VERY common in a
given family line. Watching for these patterns can help in your genealogy
research.

1st son = father's father
2nd son = mother's father
3rd son = father
4th son = father's oldest brother
5th son = father's 2nd oldest brother or mother's oldest brother
1st dau = mother's mother
2nd dau = father's mother
3rd dau = mother
4th dau = mother's oldest sister
5th dau = mother's 2nd oldest sister or father's oldest sister
