In the process of assessing the software and was wondering whether best practice is to include all descendants, Ancestors, siblings in one project or setup family branches in different projects. Didn't want to build one huge project if that's not the way to go, all feedback appreciated
Hi Chris .I made the mistake of having the 1 tree online ,and it became too large as all connections was on it. Now i would do Direct line with issue then make separate trees for each issue with their spouse and children.
I have one large tree, but sometimes I make smaller trees when I'm looking for something specific. I don't have descendants on it past about one generation, but I have another tree for descendants for DNA use.
