  1. This is a nice post and great incorporation of a pedigree/family tree representation in your blog post. Many people have been inquiring about how to include a pedigree/family tree in their blogs. Do you mind if I share this posts with other bloggers? And do you mind telling me how you did it? It looks like you made a screenshot of some kind of software....I did something like this on one of my blogs here: http://brooksandwilliams.wordpress.com/brooks-family-arkansas/

    Hi Ginger,
    Thanks for stopping by. Certainly, feel free to share this post with other bloggers.

    The genealogy software I use is called Roots Magic... excellent program. (www.rootsmagic.com) They also offer a free version, which includes almost all the same features as the regular version.

    To create the image I use a program called FastStone Capture (http://www.faststone.org/FSCaptureDetail.htm) which is a neat little program that allows you to capture any pic or video currently showing on your screen.

    You have a great blog!
