Tree Health Assessment Tool

I teach people how to research their family history. I developed the Tree Health Assessment Tool as part of my classes, to help people assess the accuracy and completeness of their family tree.

The Tree Health Assessment Tool can be used in research planning, to help you identify which part of your family tree need more work; and it can be used to document your proof. It can also be used in DNA research to record which relationships have been substantiated by DNA evidence.

Using Excel series

I use Excel a lot to help me manage my family history research. This series of blog posts demonstrates some of the ways that I use it.

Using sources series

A lot is written about how to find sources, but not so much about how to use them. This is a series of blog posts I wrote about this important skill.
