Just HOW MUCH do you know about each ancestor in your family tree? Check out Yvette Hoitink’s evaluation system. https://www.dutchgenealogy.nl/six-levels-ancestral-profiles
You can download her checklists and an Excel* worksheet for seven generations that automatically does the coloring after you put in the levels. See: https://www.dutchgenealogy.nl/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/GenealogyLevels-template.xlsx
Yvette’s goal is to get all ancestors in the first five generations to level 3, which she estimates would be to the mid-1800s.
What’s YOUR goal?
*If you don’t have Excel, upload the file to Google Drive so you can modify it there.
Happy family tree climbing!
