Barrett Family Genealogy

worksheetlocationThe software used by Barrett Family Genealogy is very comprehensive and meets the needs of almost every genealogist.

With that being said there is a certain amount of learning required to make the most of your visits to the website. The project is continually growing with new information gathered regularly from my own research and information provided by other family members.

When you log into the site do a search for your own name and go to your own individual page where I have entered the known information I have about you. As indicated in the image above there is a link to a Worksheet. Open the Worksheet and complete as much information as possible and submit the form.

This will allow me to update the database and ensure that your information is correct and up to date. It also allows me to add other members of your family to the tree if they are not presently included.

When you visit the pages of other individuals there will be similar forms available from the same location on the page where you can also add information about their families.

It’s important to complete these Worksheets as it is the easiest way to add individuals and their information to the tree.

There are other ways you can add information and media to the tree but this is the easiest way to get started. I will deal with other methods in another post.

You can return to these Worksheets at any time and add more information or update any changes.


Photos and documents are an important means of preserving our memories and family history and most of us probably have boxes of old photos and documents stored away somewhere. Part of the process at Barrett Family Genealogy is to create a digital collection of photos and documents of all family members in every branch of our family tree.

If you would like to contribute to the collection, the first part of the process is to convert the original media into a digital version. If you have a smart phone (iPhone, android or windows) or iPad or tablet it has now become very easy to scan photos and documents using the camera on your device and a free app called CamScanner.

I have been using it for some time and its amazing. The basic account is free which provides all the best features but if you use the link below you can receive 1 month of free premium service. After the first month you will still retain the free account. I highly recommend it.
