My Family View: Research Progress

The Research Progress worksheet in My Family View begins with the visualization of your research progress, based on your settings in My Personal Research Goals, and combines that visualization with a detailed timeline.  While this worksheet lacks the detailed source/citation information found in either the Source Timeline or the Detailed Worksheet, it conveys a detailed summary of the information you have recorded for this ancestor.

The header section includes:

  • Birth date and location
  • Death date and location
  • Relationship to the home person
  • Research progress in each demographic area that is configured in My Personal Research Goals and applicable to this person.
    1. Vital Statics
    2. Death Statistics
    3. Census Research
    4. Military Research
    5. Occupation
    6. Religious Research
