This is actually the proper way to build a real Ancestors Database

  • EVERY Person receives an unique ID-Number
  • The basic Database contains general information of a person such as, surname, given name, birth date and place, death date and place, source of data, etc.
  • Then it will be linked to the marriage database, giving details of the person's marriage(s). Also it shows all children from each marriage.
  • When there is data about emigration and immigration, then it will be linked to the Passenger Lists Database.
  • Upon returning to the old country, we should be able to follow the whole life of this person as much as possible.
    • Whenever this person is listed in a Local Heritage Book it should be linked to the Ancestors Database..
    • Old address books are often a source of information. This data should also link to the Ancestors Database. As a matter of fact, the address book from Jena 1928, Thuringia, is currently being added to our database and will be linked to the Ancestors Database.

Friends, this is history coming alive, unlike getting bits and pieces of information over a long period of time.
