Charts are an important tool in research. They not only help visually show the family tree, and in doing so are a great way to get other family interested, but you can use charts to actually help you in your research too. For instance use family group charts to see where you have gaps in your research, photographic charts to show off the family, colour-coded charts to show the different branches, or timelines which help put thing into perspective ... the list goes on.
This research guide is designed to help you learn about charts and how to use them to further your genealogical research. There's a myriad of forms and charts available and the group of authors show you how to use them to analyse your data, giving you a different perspective. Readers are introduced to timelines, family group records, pedigree charts, extract tools, photographs, maps, and more.
Please note: this is a US published book, and while the concepts they teach are useful for anyone anywhere, the examples are all US orientated.
