Michael John Neill wrote a great blog post this week, Pencil and Paper Sometimes Will Do. I laughed when I saw his little chart because I do this all the time. Whenever someone wants me to help them with a dilemma I have to draw out the family or it won’t make sense to me.
The Columbia County [GA] Genealogical Society had a “Genealogy Road Show” not too long ago. Two of the cases presented were a bit complicated and the best way to show the family structure was by using a diagram like this. I fancied it up for the presentation using Popplet but the concept is the same. Sometimes it just makes more sense if you can actual see it.
