In a recent post in the Busting Your Brick Wall Challenge, I talked about researching the friends, neighbours and acquaintances of our ancestors and I thought I would share the FAN fact that I created in Roots Magic to help me keep track of these people as I research my family.
From the post:
I wanted to put the George and Mary Draycott family into my Roots Magic database so that I could record what I found when I was researching them, however these people, as far as I know, are not actually related to my family and it would be easy to lose track of why I added them. To link them to my family, I created a FAN fact type that I could share between the two families.
I’m interested to hear how everyone else keeps track of their ancestor’s FAN club. Please share your comments below.
