Descendant (Indented) Charts

2011 has been a very busy year, and I have somewhat neglected the website, and blogs. This is understandable as I work full-time as the Project Manager of a very innovative, market-leading, global 3-year project that provides the infrastructure that will enable modular, multi-modal content production. In addition, in April I joined the committee of the Guild of One-Name Studies, in the role of the Editor of their quarterly journal. So it has been a challenging year.

Nevertheless, a week ago, I was delighted to see that a new edition was available of The Master Genealogist (TMG), the family history program that we use to record Pa(r)s(k)(e)(que) related information. I welcome this with open arms, as for some time, we have not been able to produce reports due to technical constraints. This has now been resolved. Lots of new features are also available, and over the next couple of months, I hope to include some of these new features.

Additionally, I have updated to the latest version of John Cardinal's Second Site. This marvellous software enables me to generate over 11,000 files and webpages, in less than 5 minutes. This pages make up the bulk of the website - the Detailed Narratives, Charts, Master Place Index, and the Surname Index, to name a few. One of the features available earlier in the year, but not yet included on our website was the Descendant Indented Chart.

The descendant indented chart condenses the very large charts and makes them much more manageable, and easily printed. The chart shows the children indented under the entries for their parents. The charts include plus [+] and minus [-] symbols that allow expanding or collapsing sections of the tree.

In this latest website update, I have included new indented charts for:

Chart 01: Indented Chart - William PASKE, (c1695- ) lived in Wellingore, Lincolnshire #3106 

Chart 02: Indented Chart - Suffolk Main Progenitor - John & Mirabel Pask née Sparrow #3497

Chart 03: Indented Chart - Lincolnshire Main Progenitor - Johannis [John] PASK, (c1545 - ) wife Elizabeth ARCHER lived in Washingborough, Lincolnshire #1597

Chart 04: Indented Chart - Monmouthshire Main Progenitor: Isaac PASK, (c1705 - ) lived in Llanvihangel-ystern-Llewern, Monmouthshire #3687

Chart 06: Indented Chart - Unknown PASK lived in Kedington, Suffolk #13655 

Website Update 26 December 2011

The website has being updated today Monday 26 December 2011. Although there has not been an update for some time, it nevertheless contains a lot of ongoing changes. There are 64 new narratives added since the last update, making a total of 9,072. Altogether this year over 500+ new detailed narratives are now available on the website.

These updates relate to the following charts / family groups:

A full list of the recent changes to the narratives is available in the New or Changed Narratives section.
