  1. Colleen, how do you do the family tree outline with your ancestor highlighted? Really adds to my ability to understand who's who in the census data.

    1. Marian, I used my Family Tree Maker program. It is an hourglass family chart. When making the chart there are many options for fonts & boxes, etc. You can also have 'marked boxes' that can be different from the other boxes as I did here. Glad it works. Thanks.
