Build a Genealogy Database to Track Family Ancestry

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

If you have ever wanted to build a Genealogy database to track your ancestry or create a Family Tree, then this video is for you. Joyce from Fairbanks, Alaska (a Gold Member) asks, "I’ve been researching my family and tracking my ancestry using Excel sheets. As you can imagine, these are getting very crazy. Is there a good way to track genealogy using Access?"


I'll show you how to double-click to jump to a parent or child's record. We'll create a "quick add" popup form so you can add another person without leaving the person you're on. Great for quick data entry! We'll also see how to prevent deleting someone if they have children related to them.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault. If you signed up on YouTube you have to contact me so I can set up your account here on my web site. If you're not a member, Join Today!

Hi Rick, I know you are probably far beyond this video, but I will toss my comments anyway. Female will always have maiden name. In addition, you will need DOB in every record. I will stop for now.

Yes John, you are right. I address both of these issues in the Genealogy Seminar.
