Let's get started! How to do your Family History!


First, download this pedigree chart. 
  1. YOU are #1 - so fill out your name in the #1 slot.  Enter when you were born, enter where you were born, did you get married?  There is a space for your spouse.
  2. #2 is your Father - enter his information  
  3. #3 is your Mother - enter her information.
Now follow and enter everything  you know about your relatives.  Realize that some of this information will be proven false by the collection of birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates, obituaries and probate records.

I see that this is not numbered - so you are the first blank - next two are your parents - Dad on Top
Next 4 are their parents, and so forth.

Use this paper to make notes on.

When you get as much as you can filled in, let's go to the next step.  Keep in touch here and I'll show you what to do next.
