Can Color Help With John, Henry, and Thomas?

Sometimes things just don't stand out in black and white. If you're working on sorting out a John, Henry, and Thomas, consider printing out the documents or document transcriptions you have for them and highlighting each one in their own color. It may be easier to see who is consistently on what documents together if you've color-coded them.


  1. I color coded my War of 1812, Civil War, World War 1 and World War 2 ancestors, it helps me to instantly see who belongs to what war.

  2. I color code my Williams and Elizabeths so I get the right children with them.
