Anyone doing genealogy on Ancestry.com?
Sunday, April 13, 2014
I had my genealogy on my computer , but neglected to have a backup. So when the computer crashed...well, you know! Recently my mother passed and I started updating my written records. I had downloaded the Ancestry.com app, but have been too busy to do anything with it. I decided this was as good a time as any to recreate the pedigree online and put another copy on removable storage.
I began entering information on the pedigree chart and got quite a bit entered before I realized the numbers assigned each individual didn't match the position on a chart. By that I mean, on a pedigree chart I'm number 1, my father is 2, mother would be 3, my grandparents would be 4, 5, 6 & 7 and so on. However, as I was entering people this time I found my mother was now 13. The grandfather who should have been 8 was now 3. I don't know if I messed up a setting somewhere, or what, but this is a problem for me since no one past my father and myself will match up to the reference numbers on my wall chart.
Does any of this make sense to anyone? Any suggestions?
