I’ve now converted the numbering over to a single sequential number. The idea here is that the number usually will not be displayed. But it will be displayed by default for printing, since printouts won’t have hyperlinks you can click on, and you won’t be able to find the correct person quickly without it.

The one thing being lost by removing the ID numbers is an easy way to identify where in the tree you are. With the ID numbers, if you had prefixes like SMI and JON and BRO to represent the Smith, Jones and Brown families, then you would know immediately seeing SMI-23 that you were in the Smith family. I’ll have to come up with another way of helping to identify where in the tree you are. If anyone has any good ideas for this, please let me know.
