GENCOM – Genealogy Research Utilizing Computer Technology

We are a genealogy computer group, and all of our meetings focus on genealogy topics. A distinction of  our group is that we emphasize use of computers in genealogy.  The meetings are informational and the topics are relative to genealogy/and or computer research associated with genealogy research.

Our GENCOM group has a wide mixture of those who are newcomers and experts, both in the use of computers and genealogical   research.  If you are new to computers, or if you are new to genealogy, or both, do not be intimidated about our group. Come to one of our meetings  as a visitor with no obligation to join. Come and be a part of one of the fastest growing hobbies of our time.

Come and join us as we share the skills that we have learned in genealogical research and computer technology. We learn from each other and others learn by each one of us sharing our knowledge.

A Relationship Chart by Betty Eichhorn

Jim Jones:

A different easier to read relationship chart with explanation from Betty Eichhorn and Dick Eastman. Any comments on what you think about this chart?

In the recent comments to earlier newsletter articles, several readers suggested that one or more relationship charts may be difficult to read. Betty Eichhorn suggested to me that she has an easier-to-read chart that is also accompanied by a description of relationships.

After looking at her chart and the accompanying description, I agree. Betty’s chart is easier to read and understand. Betty has graciously agreed to share her two page chart and description with everyone.
