Tracking Your Ancestors with a Timeline

One of the easiest genealogical research techniques is creating a timeline. Timelines allow the researcher to organize the facts about an ancestor in chronological order and observe patterns. These patterns help determine where to locate new information that can lead to breakthroughs in your research. In this workshop you will learn how to create a time line for one of your family members. Choose one person you are researching and bring the information you have on them to the workshop. Discover how records other than baptismal, marriage and death can assist your search, adding nuance and depth to your family’s history.
