Many families have certain common given names that are passed down from generation to generation and used again and again. Hence, the problem of which one is this is a common one.Sr-1, Sr-2 is a common solution needed in some family tree software that keys entries by given name. Better are the ones that work by record number. Then the computer at least can keep them straight.Software's many limitations are the reason I prefer to keep records in a word processor file. Much stuff must be done by hand rather than relying on software to create neat charts, but I can handle anything that comes up without limitation.My solution to the repeated given name problem is to affix the birth year (or best estimate of birth year) for routine referrals. This works most of the time, but some overlap is still possible. Then add a, b, and c etc. So it becomes--Jacob-1842, Jacob-1876, Jacob-1882 etc, or if necessary Jacob-1776a and Jacob-1776b
