Discover your Family Tree Today

Build, Document, and Share a Reliable Family Tree through Research

A well documented family tree includes sources that help to prove events and relationships. Why add historical documents? Because sources validate your family history. How is this done? Through research you find documents, stories, letters, and photographs. In conventional genealogy programs, once you add sources to your tree, it does not assist you in understanding what you have or what you should work on. Through reports you might be able to figure out what you have or what is missing. We have a solution to this issue. With our program you see the evidence that a record provides, making it easy to track what is important to you without having to print out a report!

Add Sources to Validate your Ancestry Research

When you add sources, you confirm event information by rating your sources for the data found as well as rating the document for its reliability, quality, and information. This will in turn give a rating to the source.

Since it takes several documents to confirm family data, we take all your sources and add them together. This is how you see your rating color change for a person.

How Reliable is your Tree?

Focus you efforts on one question for one person or family at a time. Write down what you want to accomplish and don’t leave any stone unturned. Don’t expect exact or consistent spelling of names or places. Think of how the name sounds and how it could be written phonetically. Don’t expect exact or consistent spellings. If you can’t find a person in a particular area, expand to the surrounding areas. You need to be a detective and figure out clues.

Source Information Needs to be Analyzed

When you conduct your ancestry research and find a genealogy document, do you analyze the information for accuracy, reliability, and is it describing facts about a relative? These questions help to validate the quality, reliability and data of your sources.
  1. Does it answer genealogical questions such as: who, what, when, or where?
  2. Does the data contradict facts that you have, or does it help solve a question?
  3. Who provided the information? Someone with first-hand knowledge or someone who is rewriting data that they think is true? Rewritten data can easily be recorded incorrectly on accident.
  4. If the facts are given by the person with first-hand knowledge, are they being honest about the data? Someone might have fudged their age to get into the military or get married.
  5. Does the data give specific dates or locations or relationships, or does it allude to them?
  6. Were the facts recorded shortly after the event or has time past?
