Genealogy Charts

Genealogy Charts

Misbach is a favorite source of mine for Charts. Why, in this digital age do I even care about Charts and Forms?
  • I like to use them as worksheets.
  • If my software program doesn't provide blank forms or a particular form I'm looking for, then I have options with downloads and printables online.
  • They make nice gifts for members of our family at Christmas and Birthdays or for kinfolks who aren't computer literate, yet.
Someone asked me recently about a bowtie chart.  At this site, I finally got the clearest understanding of what a Bowtie Chart is! 

Bowtie Chart 
This is very similar to the Fan chart, but each side is spread out for visual effect. It clearly separates maternal and paternal ancestral lines. There are fields that allow you to link from one chart to another. Size is 8.5" x 11".




It is November, and I 
am thankful for
being able to learn
new stuff!

Genealogy's Star: Update on Who Owns the Genealogy Companies

Genealogy's Star: Update on Who Owns the Genealogy Companies

I think this article interesting, but does it really matter who owns what?  I suppose it is interesting and even justifiable if you have a deeply embedded business sense when it comes to corporations.  What does matter is intent, content, and reliability.
