Computer Software Program Ancestor Notes
One way to summarize your data is in the individual Notes section, which comes after the basic Family Group Record on a genealogy program, can be used in many ways. You can keep recordings and research notes on events, followed by my linkage proofs and details of photos held.
The chart below is an example of the PAF Notes kept for my ancestor Albert James JUPP. It indicates the sources of information, their exact wording, other items of interest as well as items not found and searches still needed.
PAF Notes—Albert James JUPP—RIN 186
| BIRTH: Hurstpierpoint, Sussex. 2 Apr 1851. ‘Albert James s/o James JUPP keeper & Anne née. RICHARDSON. Informant: Father of Hurstpierpoint.’ Photocopy of certificate held. He was the only child in the family of 8 who had 2 christian names. One was his father’s, the other may have been in honour of Queen Victoria’s husband. Prince Albert was instrumental in organizing the Great Exhibition of 1851 which opened on 1st May that year, between Albert James JUPP’s birth and christening. He seems to have alternated between the 2 names throughout his life.|

Wits: Henry Edward Dartnell [her brother], Alice Drewitt [possibly relative of Registrar Frederick Drewitt ?].’
Photocopy of certificate held. NB They had already christened 2 children in Crayford, Kent where they were living as man and wife, so they couldn’t very well ask that vicar to marry them. Their wedding venue was 15 miles away on the direct train line to London. How did they manage to get banns called there?
