Charting Acquaintances

When reviewing affidavits and other material from a pension file, create a time line (when possible) of when each individual met the pension applicant. Individuals providing testimony will often indicate how long they knew the claimant. Creating a chronology of when your ancestor met whom may help in tracking migration chains, possible areas of residence, etc.
