August’s Program: Using Charts to Connect the Dots: Timelines, Birth Dates, Land In-and-Out, and FANs With Carol Darrow

Carol Cooke Darrow

Organizing your genealogical research notes and documents is a matter of connecting the dots. You know your great-grandfather was born in Virginia, lived in Kentucky and died in Illinois. How can you organize your research to explain what happened in his life. Carol Cooke Darrow (shown above), Certified Genealogist®, will demonstrate the use of timelines, birth year calculations, land in-and-out charts, and FAN charts (Friends, Associates, and Neighbors) that can help clarify the life story of your ancestor.

Carol Cooke Darrow has been a Certified Genealogist for more than ten years. Carol has a degree in history and English and is the co-author of The Genealogist’s Guide to Researching Tax Records, published in October 2007. She currently volunteers every week at the Denver Public Library and the National Archives branch in Broomfield.

Visitors are welcome to all meetings!
