Family tree

Family Tree? Hawkeye4077

I want to write down mine and my husband's family trees, but I don't know where to start. Someone told me that you could pay for the FBI to send you a printout of your family tree, but I can't find any info on their site. Does anyone have any ideas?

Don't count on the FBI heehee! Count on your oldest living family members to get you started, to tell you all they can remember of their parents and grandparents as far back as they can. You will need full names, and dates and places of births, marriages and deaths. Enter the information onto genealogy software, bought or free online, for organization, so you'll know what you know and don't know yet, thus where and when to begin looking. You've now begun documenting your work, and will be needing documents as you can find them available. Cemeteries your elders directed you to, your library and nearest LDS Family History Center can help you get started. You will need some access to census images. From this point I don't know if you are US or not, so what I write is generalized. Poke around at familysearch.org, rootsweb.com and ancestry.com. Some others are genforum.com, gencircles.com, interment.net and findagrave.com . OH! Don't take *anything* you find as fact, check it out for yourself, at very minimum on census images. Document document document!

Family tree? bethan2028

I want to start my family tree but I don't know where to begine. Is there a good web sight that is FREE?

I went to ancestry.com and geneology.com They do have a fee, but I got lucky. I typed in my last name and found a message board with a relative looking for other relatives. I contacted him and he was able to put information together on what he already had and sent me a copy.

family tree? YoYoDog

Hey YoYoDog, There are many. You will spend years getting it though. You put one branch at a time together. The tree is not just out there. Here are some sites, remember to search for your Surname in these sites.

What is the best online family tree maker? Bo

I want to make a family tree on my computer. Microsoft Office did not work too well for me and I would like to know a better alternative. I would like to know the best free family tree maker online or downloadable. I want to make a vertical family tree.

Try Family Echo: http://www.familyecho.com/#edit:START

How can you add your family tree to other published family trees on ancestry.com? Angela

One of my grandpa's cousins has made a family tree but stopped at his family tree. I started to make one for myself and I would like to just search for him in her family tree and combine the 2 trees.

You can't change or add to someone else's family tree unless they add you as an editor to their tree. However, you could make your own family tree on Ancestry and import the info from your cousin's tree.

What is the best family tree or family tree site to use to create my own family tree? Yo!!!!!

and is there a way that i could find a family tree that allows me to just do one side of my family? I mean without even having to even see and deal with the other side of the tree.

Ancestry and genealogy has been around since LONG BEFORE computers or the internet. You do not need a site online, to "do" your research/ family history. I have seen information ripped off and misused, and privacy violated. PAF is a program (not website) that is free, and you can get from the LDS church website www.familysearch.org It stores your family information. It does not "make" the info..you still have to find records to do that. You put in who you want. It belongs to you, and is stored on your computer at home. You can still share what you choose. If you choose.. you can have a database that has persons not related to you at all. Don't confuse records with a family tree, by the way. You NEED TO KNOW that a birth certificate is a record. A file online is a file online, and can be in error.

How do I make our family tree and include illegitimate child? Miz D

I would like to include this child on my family tree and include the name of her mother. My brother is the child's father and he also has children with his wife. It's not a family secret or anything like that. What is the proper way to do this on our family tree?

If you are using a genealogy program, like PAF (free) or Family Tree Maker ($39 and up) or Roots Magic ($29) you can just add the lady in question and the child, without a marriage fact. If you are doing family group sheets with a pencil, you will have two, one for your brother and his wife and their children, one for your brother, the woman and their child. I'd reccomend PAF. It (and all other genealogy programs) are to genealogy what "Word" is to writing a novel; they beat paper and pencil handsd down. Go to http://www.familysearch.org/eng/default.asp for the download. It is the Mormon's site.

Where can I find an empty family tree for a project? Candy Kiss

I'm looking for a tree with empty boxes so I can do my family tree. I tried searching on google, but the trees had a family already and I want an attractive family tree. =) Thanks!

Try familysearch.org. It has a free downloadable blank family tree program. The site also has several search engines.

How do you adapt a family tree to show divorce/remarriage? stardust12081

I want to try and start a family tree. My grandmother was divorced, and then remarried. How would I show this in a family tree? Also, I want to create a form that will ask my family members to tell about their lives so that I can create a book about all of us. It will allow my grandparents to fill out the information they know about their parents and family that has passed. Does anyone have a good form for this? Or can they point me in the right direction?

There are many visual ways to show more than one marriage, in a chart form. The problem with decorative "trees" (using the term loosely) is that they can be very time consuming. Most researchers who accumulate a lot of information wind up using a genealogy program, which is set up to deal with all those persons. The LDS church offers Personal Ancestral file for free, via website, www.familysearch.org. It remains a standard... you can include pics, etc. Almost all the standard programs offer "gedcom" ability... that is, transfer the facts to a file that is interchangeable with other genealogy programs. thus, if you really got hooked and decided that you want/ need a fancier program (read, buy it), you just transfer what you have to the new one. Another standard is called a family group sheet... which lists husband, wife, and children, and includes a space for the parents of each spouse.. linking back to the prior generation. YOu would do a separate fgs for each marriage, but in the program, they would "link". These are just the basic facts... not so much as a biography type thing, which gives more of a personal touch. You may want to drop by www.cyndislist.com, which has a huge collection of genealogical resources, including tutorials on starting research, myths and hoaxes to avoid, etc. http://www.cyndislist.com/beginner.htm

How do I make a family tree with my grandparents as the root? sweetgiggles1225

for some reason my mind isn't working for me right now lol. I am trying to make a family tree for my grandfather and I want it to start with him and my grandmother, not with me. When I ask how to do it, I mean when it comes to ages and the position of the person on the tree. Do I give the eldest child my grandparents had the shortest line, and the youngest a longer line?

Most of us use genealogy programs, that can record hundreds of names and print out "Ancestors of" or "Descendants of" reports for any person in the data base. If you are embroidering a quilt or making a decorative poster, Put the grandparents on the trunk with their names and birth years. Draw or sew as many main branches as they have children. It would make sense to me to label them from left to right, starting with the oldest child. Put the names of the spouses in parenthesis under each child, if they are married. Repeat with smaller branches coming out of each child's branch, again left to right, again with spouse underneath, in parenthesis. Sketch it out first with the grandchildren in a wide arc so you know how wide you'll have to spread the "child" branches.
