Ancestral Chart PDF Format
An ancestral chart records
the ancestors from whom you directly descend -- those for whom you intend
to compile a complete and correct family unit. It shows at
a glance the progress you have made towards this goal and what remains
to be done.
Census Extraction Forms
Census extraction forms
are doubly valuable: not only do they allow researchers to see the format
and column headings for various census years (especially if the schedules
themselves are hard to read), they also provide a clean and convenient
method for extracting and filing important information you find.
Research Calendar PDF Format
The research calendar
gives an account of every record source you have searched and serves as
a reminder of what you have already done and where you have found pertinent
Research Extract PDF Format
Use the research extract
sheets to summarize information which cannot be photocopied, for which
there is no document in your possession, or for things such as deeds which
may be time-consuming or difficult to reread quickly when you need information
from the copy you have.
Correspondence Record PDF Format
It is important to keep
track of those with whom you have corresponded, the reasons for writing,
and whether or not you have already received an answer.
Family Group Sheet PDF Format
Each piece of information
concerning a pedigree ancestor and his/her family is placed on a worksheet.
Since the end result of your research efforts will be to compile complete,
correct and connected families, the use of family group sheets from the
beginning will make the compilation much easier.
