What is the best way to create a data base where members can easily check which names relate to what family branch?
Once a tree gets quite large, mine is now approaching 8000 with many family branches. Names start to become meaningless to the various family branch members.
ie. I might get a record match which throws up a new name by marriage. After including in the tree it will show on the 'Home' page but members will not easily be able to check exactly who's family that new person relates too.
Even I, even working with it almost every day, often cannot now recognise many names or decide on their relationship within the tree.
I suspect most will suggest an excel spreadsheet but I cannot decide how to go about it.
I had noticed that when I got a list of all my familys birthdays for the month of December my fathers birthday which is or was December 18, 1939. My father had passed a little over a year ago, but we still honor his Birthday as well as the day he passed. Is there any way that can me put back on our family website?
It would be nice if you could remember your relative on the date of his death, or on his birthday or indeed both; but I suppose Ingrid has the solution and it is something you would not do for a lot of people, just the close and special ones. So it would not be a lot of trouble.
