What You Need to Know Before Filling Out an Ancestry Family Group Sheet

Tracing your family tree can be an exciting and rewarding experience. An important part of the process is filling out an Ancestry Family Group Sheet. This document is used to record information about your family, including names, dates, and places of birth, marriage, and death. Here are some things you need to know before you start filling out your sheet.

Gather Information

The first step in filling out an Ancestry Family Group Sheet is to gather information about your family. Start with yourself and work your way back through the generations. Talk to relatives and look through old documents such as birth certificates, marriage licenses, and death certificates. You can also search online for records such as census data and military records. Make sure you have as much information as possible before you begin filling out the sheet.

Organize Your Data

Once you have gathered all the information about your family, it’s time to organize it into the Ancestry Family Group Sheet. This document is divided into sections for each generation of your family tree. Start with yourself at the top of the sheet and work down from there. Make sure you include all relevant information such as names, dates of birth, marriage, and death, and places of residence for each person listed on the sheet.

Fill Out The Form

Once all the data is organized into the Ancestry Family Group Sheet, it’s time to fill out the form itself. Make sure that all the information is accurate and complete before submitting it. Double-check that all names are spelled correctly and that all dates are correct. Once you have filled out the form completely, you can submit it to Ancestry for processing.

Filling out an Ancestry Family Group Sheet can be a daunting task but with a little bit of preparation it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Gather as much information as possible about your family before beginning to fill out the form. Then organize that data into the sheet itself before finally submitting it for processing. With a little bit of effort you can create a detailed record of your family tree that will last for generations.
