Using Charts to Connect the Dots: Timelines, Identity Charts, and FAN Club Charts (Program)
Charts are for problem-solving and can be crafted to fit your needs. Timelines that include the dates of events and the age of the person can help you avoid 9-year-old fathers or children born years after the death of the mother. Identity charts help to highlight differences between people of the same name who live in the same place. FAN Club charts help you identify the friends, associates and neighbors (FANs) of your ancestor.
