I could never imagine when starting this Family Tree Project just how involved things were to become.
Robbin and I have been working on this for the past couple of weeks, and there's still quite a bit of work yet to accomplish.
I went on-line to see if there are already Family Tree templates we could use (ie: Ancestory.com, and others). They're all pretty much a straight line to direct ancestors.
Of course, with our group (and the fact that we are combining the O'Flaherty and Albrant trees) we wanted a way to include everyone -- step mothers, step fathers, step brothers and sisters, 2nd marriages, etc. -- and not just by strict "blood lines".
Fortunately our son Matthew was able to set us up with Visio, a drafting program from Microsoft, that allows us to create exactly what we want. Ergo, the tree shown here is the current status of what we have (click on it for a bigger image then click the "+" sign for an even bigger image).
