Family Life Fact Chronology
This is the method that is used to track all significant events in a family's history
for use in a Family Reconstruction. Using colored index cards set up in the format shown below, assign each Family of Origin
(F.O.O) a different color of the Star's (person having the reconstruction) choice. Eg. Blue for Star's F.O.O., Green for Fathers F.O.O., Pink for Mother's F.O.O, Orange for Grandfather's F.O.O. etc. Significant events would be events like births, deaths, marriages, divorces, significant relocations, serious illnesses, and any other events tht may have affected the various families or family members. (imprisonment, rape, graduation, drafted, or sent to war, etc).
