Reports - 27 Feb 2010

Pat BurrowWe had one of our best meetings to date, with Pat Burrow, giving us a detailed presentation on Reunion Reports. She generously provided us her handout that has all the details of her talk. Pat went through the creation of the following types of Reunion Reports:

  • Family Group Sheets
  • Family History Reports
  • Register Report
  • Decendant Report
  • Ahnentafel Report (a German word that means Ancestor Table)

One thing Pat told us about at the beginning of the meeting was a terrific free census tool, available at http://www.censustools.com. It's an Excel Workbook with exact census images in spreadsheet form, that let you document and analyze census records. It's especially good for pre-1850 census records, where you don't have exact names and ages. You can then aggregate the Censustool-gathered information into Richard Rand's Census Analysis form (available free at SVCGG) and amaze yourself with conclusions and new theories about the people you're researching. Both tools have been combined into one Excel workbook for your convenience in either a Zip File or XLS File. Check the two web sites, to see if there's a more current version.

Also, try out Pat Burrow's web site at http://www.plumlady.com that is all about the Macintosh and Genealogy. Click on "Reunion for the Mac Class Notes" to get into her computer stuff. Pat updates it with iWeb using her Macintosh. She's associated with the Silicon Valley Computer Genealogy Group in Santa Clara and holds free Macintosh Reunion sessions on the 2nd Saturday of each month as part of the SVCGG monthly meeting. A useful link on her web site has reviews of genealogy programs for all computers and if you want, reviews of genealogy programs only on Macintosh Genealogy programs.
