Charts from Issue 29
This is a minimized version of a chart I used in issue 29 to analyze several documents that were located on the person being researched. Sometimes it is really helpful to see things side by side to make the comparison. Issue 29 has the entire chart and the analysis that went along with it.
I'm also a big believer that not everything has to be done on a computer. The family history that was discussed in issue 29 as the stepping point for further research was used to quickly create a chart showing the relationships. This was used as research progressed in a variety of ways discussed in issue 29. Sometimes pencil and paper are faster.
