AQ: Other Events..Taking Advantage of this Resource!

Throughout one's life are many events that occur besides the birth, marriage and death.

In fact, we are  reminded in a poem entitled "The Dash", written by Linda Ellis of just how important one's time here is to those whose's lives were touched in some way by that person. Usually those individuals are family members, friends, colleagues who had the opportunity to know an individual.

Ancestral Quest has a way to record those additional events, like the first day of school, joining a sports team, winning an award, participating in a play, joining the military, finding a true love, getting that first job and so many more events that are worth remembering and recording.

When you open up and individual's Edit Screen, the area to add these life events is in the lower bottom of the screen as shown below: 

While the shot only shows some of the events, each event shows up in all AQ reports, the individuals summary and their timeline as follows:

The 'other events' are interwoven throughout the timeline very nicely. Be sure to take the time to record those special events for your family members.

Remember Ancestral Quest is fully FamilySearch Certified!

Comments and questions are always welcome!

Happy Ancestraling...
