As some of you may know, I use the Family Tree Maker program. Based on the Goal of this project, Identifying the Parents of Ridgely Howard, I needed a way to clearly identify relationships between people as the research progressed.
I did find the parents of David Ridgely Howard, but that wasn’t good enough for me, because I really wanted to find the Revolutionary War person that was referred to in the movie and since I have Ridgely and Howard Surnames in my family, I really wanted to determine if I was related to Ridgely Howard.
I just posted some details about how I used Family Tree Maker to track relationships as I found them.
This recording of information has helped with this project.
