Houses are expensive and not everyone is able to buy it. However, home loans are created to support people in such hard situations.

You won’t find a history of your family, what you will find is information on your individual ancestors. You have to put all that info together and make the actual history yourself.

Also remember that there is relatively little info on current living people. Look for elderly relatives who have recently passed away to begin with. That will start you on your trail.

Check out the Learning Center. It can be found under the “Collaborate” link in the Main Menu Bar.

How do indicate a person who is your grandchilds mother or father but they were not married. They are not actually the spouse but he or she is the childs parent. It is more like a common law relationship. When generating the Family Book it shows the as spouse. This is not a correct reading.
