I have a card pinned on each nest box on which I jot down the pair's ring numbers & date paired. Then for every round of eggs, the dates when the eggs were laid & hatched, and the youngsters ring numbers. I also add a note (a tick) when I've seen the youngsters eating & drinking in the box which is usually the time I shift them to the y/b end.

I duplicate most of the info from the card onto a microsoft excel spreadsheet. And at the end of the year I enter youngsters left at the end of the racing into LoftBase, my loft management programme, and that helps me keep track of their parentage & relationships to all other birds in the loft.

I just keep a book, with parents ring numbers and what they breed and at end of season highlight whats in loft, whats dead + whats
lost in different colours of course with a key that way i know whats bred out of what and what happened to what.
Find this the easiest way in my opinion :)
Keep On Smiling. :)
