Have You Made a Chart Lately?

Whenever I'm stuck on virtually any genealogical problem, I make a chart or a table. It forces me to sort out the key pieces of information that are confusing me and allows me to sort the information in a variety of ways. Here's an example of a chart I used while trying to find a guy in the 1850 census and one of when my ancestors were eligible to vote.

  1. Yes, Charts are very helpful! I chart census findings for a family branch to see results & gaps at a glance.
