  • We are often times amazed by the simplest things in this world–a world that appears to be able to show us, or give us anything. However, if you really want to be amazed, look beyond the “anything” this world has to offer, because “anything” implies that the world can only offer what it already has.

    • Ancestor Charts, or Pedigree Charts. There are many varieties available for free download from the internet; search for Genealogy Charts. Your local library may have printed forms that you may photocopy for your use. Remember the “rules” – full names, three-letter abbreviation for the month in dates, the county name for each event.
