When I reach a certain point in my research, I create a profile of the family member. The profiles of living family members generally only include immediate ancestors and descendants as well as photographs. Occasionally, other types of documents are also included.
The profiles of deceased family members are more extensive. Many include a biographical sketch of the individual as well as information that places the person in his/her historical context.
Using the Index
The index has been cross referenced by maiden name, married name, nick name, and various spellings of a name. Although I will primarily use birth names for all references on the web site, the cross referencing will make it easier to find individuals for whom you have an interest.
