Family Group Records
I found that using the "Family Group Record" sheet did not record enough information for my liking. I found not being able to add second spouse information frustrating as it would mean duplicating sheets in order to record both spouses. Going forward I will be using the "Family Group Sheet" however I need to copy a lot more!
As I have been researching for a while I didn't find anything surprising going back to my great grandparents.
List of Personal Documents
- Christening Certificates for my brother and I.
- Short birth certificates for my brother and I; I had to order the full ones!!
- Birth and Marriage Certificates for my paternal great grandparents.
- Newspaper clippings detailing deaths / funerals of various family members on my paternal side.
From these documents I was able to get the various birth, christening, marriage, death and burial dates. See how people relate to each other. Go back a generation. Get information about occupations and locations. The newspapers also threw up a few names that were unfamiliar so they were put to one side until they could be put correctly into the family.
