Individual View

The Individual View is a great way to make sure all the information you've entered about a person in your family is there. It also allows you to see how they fit into the family, view the notes and sources altogether providing a snapshot of that individual.

The first section in the Individual View show a picture if you've put one there and all of there basic information along with any additional items you may have placed in "Other Events". Here is a sample from my grandfather:

The next section shows him as a child: 

Then here he is with his spouse and children:

The next section covers the Notes you've entered:

The last section is for the sources:

When you put this altogether you have a nice summary of the individual. It also provides an opportunity to see if you need to add an additional sources or documentation to the family member to have a more complete picture. For instance, you could add stories or have a link to blog stories or add additional pictures. 

You can also print up the whole summary with the pictures and all you have on this individual. Click here to view the summary in PDF format.

Either viewing it on the tab marked "Individual" in Ancestral Quest or creating a document to share,it is a nice way to provide a summary of information on a person in your family file! You also could add this kind of summary in various other places where you may have shared your family file.

Enjoy this great feature in Ancestral Quest!
