I maintain all of my genealogical information using a software application called Family Tree Maker. Here’s the current snapshot of my database:
Media: 2559 (photographs and document images)
Source Groups: 268
Source Citations: 4313
4,313 citations equals 1.85 citations per person, just shy of two. As many ancestors have many more citations, it’s safe to say that there are people in my family tree for whom I have no proof. Hopefully over the next year I can get that number much higher.
By documenting this information at the start of the year, I hope to be able to track the growth of my family tree year to year. Since this is the first time I’ve done this, I have nothing to compare, but next year should prove interesting.
Happy New Year!
