Your Family Members Are Involved, World War 11 - Current

Your Family Members Are Involved, World War 11- Current

Family members, are you keeping the records of your ancestors that were in the making of our country and the keeping of it free.

How many Uncles, Aunts, Cousins of your life time have been involved in defending our Nation?

Somehow I wonder if we are forgetting our current past service members while tracking the relatives that created our country.

This topic came  up when a new member contacted me and wanted to know if we had a Genealogy Chart that showed the downline of each of our Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles.

She was having trouble remembering who's child belong to which line and did not want to embarrass
herself when communicating with distant kin.

Having thought about it, I realized if she had her tree on line in front of her, she could see, the children of each ancestor, if she had entered them into the program.

I do not think we have paper charts that show that, other than the Family Group Sheet.

That is why, that chart is so critical in your research.  With the Family Group Sheet you are keeping track of all members in each parents line.  The Family Group Sheet lists: parents, some have one line for Grandparents as reference, but mostly it then lets you document each child living or dead, it gives you a space for the child's spouse. The birth, marriage and death of each person can be recorded on that page.  It can carry a large amount of information in a very small space.

The advantage of the Group Sheet is so very key and on a computer program it is entered and shows at the click of a few tabs.

Now while doing this are you marking the various members who served during our various Wars, and Conflicts.?

I notice that is a feature I am hoping they will add.  Are you reading this Mark Olson of MyHeritage.com or RootsMagic, or Reunion makers?

  1. Family trees are most important to future generations than the current as some families does not have record of all their family history. Family tree diagrams are the best way to illustrate genealogy structure of a family. You can create family tree charts using family tree maker . Find more family tree templates in the diagram community of Creately.
