My Ancestor Chart

On My Family page I have now started to develop my Ancestor Chart using the Eytzinger Method to number entries in an Ahnentafel. Will be adding more factual information including dates and locations and developing a plan to fill some of the gaps. The surnames shown in my ancestor chart so far are Crackett, Webb, Turner, Henderson, Cracket, Parkinson, Carr, Davis, Thornton, Tait, Bainbridge, Murray, Carr, Corbett, Stavers, Oliver, Reay, Newton, Young and Hall.


Pedigree lines

Under My Family on the menu I have set up individual pages for the various lines in my pedigree. The first piece of content on each page will define the start of the line and indicate how many generations I have traced back. In future updates I will add more factual information about the individuals in the pedigree lines and other branches. I made a start today on Carr, Webb, Henderson and Tait.

Online research sites

Today I have learnt how to add links to the column at the right of the blog. Added a few of the research sites that have given me good leads in my research: FreeBMD, Findmypast, Ancestry, GenesReunited. Since there are too many to list here I have documented other sites I have used on a page with online research tips.

Monument photos

Wonder if I can add a little content every day in 2011. My first attempt missed Jan 1, by just a few minutes. Have started to experiment with the media library and how to caption photos by uploading a couple of photos from my cemetery visits at Easter. My Monument page under the Research menu tells you about which cemeteries I have visited. Photos posted today are the Turner family plot in Amble East Cemetery and the grave of my uncle Syd Crackett in Amble West Cemetery.
