Question: Really stupid question on making a maternal and paternal chart!.!?
Please forgive my stupidity!. I have been researching my history!. I would like to make a paternal and maternal chart on my father!. My mother never knew her parents so I have to go with my father's side!.
I know Maternal follows the mother's line and paternal follows the father's line!. But I can't find any samples on how to chart it!. Any ideas!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Go to
Enter someone - Robert E!. Lee or Ulysses Grant will work!. Click on someone's data, then click on "Pedigree Chart"!. It will show you!.

PS - there is a difference between stupidity and ignornace!. If brains were buckets, stupid would be small, and ignorant would be empty!. You needn't apologize for ignornace!. Everyone is ignorant at first!. We ask questions, the bucket fills, and soon we are no longer ignorant!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

The question you have asked is by no means stupid, in truth I think that the best way to chart your tree is to get a family history programme for you computer and let that do the work for you!.

Then you can print as much or as little as you want!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I'm glad you found the charts!. Ted always has good advise!. I have always been told two things:

1st- No such thing as a stupid questions!

2nd - If you don't learn something new every day; you've wasted the day!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
