“Family Tree” Overview

by Tonia Kendrick on November 10, 2009 in Research,Technology

The “Family Tree” tab (above) contains a database of all my genealogy research.  I thought it would be helpful to provide a navigational overview.

The Genealogy Menu is visible in the sidebar whenever you are in the “Family Tree” section.  It contains links to:

  • Surnames includes a list of the top 30 surnames in the database, ordered by number of people, as well as links to all surnames alphabetically.
  • What’s New includes recent additions and changes.
  • Documents includes census images, military records, book excerpts, and more.
  • Cemeteries shows where relatives are buried.  Drill down by location to see each cemetery and the people buried there.
  • Headstones contains all the headstone photos I have, with links to cemetery and person pages.
  • Places is a high-level overview of the locations where people lived, including the top 30 localities, ordered by number of places within that locality.  Click on the magnifying glass icon next to any location to see the people who lived there.
  • Notes contains all my research notes.  Click on the link to see the complete family or person page to which the note refers.
  • Dates and Anniversaries defaults to events that happened on today’s date in history.  You can search for any event on any day using the search fields at the top of the page.
  • Statistics contains a summary of the database; see the number individuals, families, unique surnames, documents, sources, and more.
  • Contact Us – click here to send me an email.
