When I travel to visit family in other areas I try to gather as much information and original documents as I can. Unfortunately, I rarely have time to do more than put the info in an individual folder. I like to use Legacy to record my family information. It has many great features but one of the ones I like the best is that I can run a Chronology report on any person in my tree. This helps me see all the ‘events’ in their life in chronological order.
When I find the individual I am working on I click the tab for Chronology-
Then I get my Chronolgy report-
This is a great way to see my information but I like to also have information at a glance to keep track of what I have and what my plan is in my research. I developed the following chart that helps me determine my ‘To Do’ list for this ancestor.
Now, at a glance, I know where I am in my research for this individual and this gives me a way to keep track of what’s next.
I would greatly appreciate hearing from you if you have comments or information to share.
Enjoy the journey,
