How do I navigate FamilyLegacy.org?
We've worked very hard to make the navigation of this site as efficient as possible. There is a search bar at the top of every page that enables you to search the entire site. The main category of pages are the family pages. These pages list pedigrees of different ancestors and include clickable links to each person for which we have more information. From the family page you get to the person pages on which are located information about a spouse, children, parents, birth, marriage, and death information. Also on these pages can be histories, documents, pictures, and much more.
