Pedigree + Family Group Record + Index: a dynamite combination
Published on: 21 December 2011
The nitty-gritty of genealogy is gathering information. Charting Companion offers great tools to get the job done:
- The classic Pedigree chart
- Matching Family Group Record
- A comprehensive Index
The Pedigree is a rigid, fixed-format chart that differs from the Ancestor in that blank spaces are reserved for missing ancestors, instead of compacting the chart.
An Index is a nice touch to quickly locate people, if you have a lot of Pedigree charts.
The Family Group Record makes a great worksheet for family and relatives to fill in missing information, or correct errors. Easy to hand out a family reunions.
All three of these charts are generated automatically when you select the “Pedigree Chart” option.
