An MCGS Exclusive

The Brother/Sister Chart!
 
  
This Pedigree chart is a working "score sheet." It presents a quick summary of one's knowledge of his/her ancestors and the proof of the information as derived from primary sources. It combines the usual Pedigree chart with features of a Family Group sheet. So, in addition to direct ancestors, all the children can be shown for the first four generations of families. Lines are also given to write source references. Comes with description/instruction sheet; covers seven generations.

We always try to have programs that are interesting and informative for our members and this is one way you can make sure we are meeting our goals.
