Ages at Marriage12-9-2017 by Allan Joyce12-12-2017 by Allan Joyce3
I have always liked the fact that you supply us with an age at death, is there a way that could be done for marriages?  I am constantly amazed at how many women lied about their age on marriage records.  (and some men).

Thanks Ray

Ancestor and Pedigree datasets in tabular form

It could be implemented from those pages by push button, like the map.

Thanks again for all this.

Change suggestions to moderator - Walls

I have a case, in someone else's records, where I believe a parental link is wrong. (p295626)

The suggestion box doesn't let me in there.
cheklist for legal documents10-25-2017 by JOSEPH B ROSE10-25-2017 by JOSEPH B ROSE1
I am working on my family link to the mayflower. Birth, marriage, and death certificates are hard to obtain before 1910 or earlier.

The idea of of the checklist that can be copied or transferred is great. Also when siblings are born about the same time it may show city county and state. Always a great clue

Select two people and have the program identify the relationship, like third cousin twice removed.  A report could identify the common parent and descendents.
Connecting family with history?10-23-2021 by Ray Gurganus10-27-2021 by Ray Gurganus9
A main goal of the website is not just family history, but to connect family with history, helping people to become more than just names, dates, and places. With this in mind, there are many options that do this....
  • Adding occupations and linking to others with those occupations
  • Connecting ministers with churches where they served
  • Connecting navy sailors with ships where they served
  • Connecting teachers with schools where they served
  • Connecting architects with some of their attributed works
  • Connecting participants with historical events like the Boston Tea Party, the Mayflower, battles, etc.
  • Connecting portrait artists with the subjects of their portraits
  • Connecting authors with the subjects of their histories
  • Connecting historical markers with the people and places featured

... and more. My question is, what other options could be added to extend existing functionality, or to branch out into new areas?

Dates12-8-2012 by Edwin Poor12-9-2012 by Ray Gurganus5
Have you thought of adding between in the dates catagory, Some people have probate dates of when the Will was written and when it was probated.
And there is no way to show the date during the short time period when the Old/new calender  method used.
DNA8-2-2015 by kimmer8-2-2015 by Ray Gurganus2
With Autosomal DNA research being so popular now, have you thought about adding that information to the DNA section?

Also, there does not seem to be a place for Mt DNA

Thank you,
