Philip S. Miller Library, 100 S. Wilcox Street, Castle Rock, CO 80104

Presented by Carol Darrow

Charts are for problem-solving and can be crafted to fit your needs. Timelines that include the dates of events and the age of the person can help you avoid 9-year-old fathers or children born years after the death of the mother. Identity charts help to highlight differences between people of the same name who live in the same place. FAN Club charts help you identify the friends, associates and neighbors (FANs) of your ancestor.

Carol Cooke Darrow has been a BCG Certified Genealogist for the past 15 years. She is a past president of the Colorado Genealogical Society in Denver and currently volunteers at the Denver Public Library on Tuesdays and the National Archives in Broomfield on Thursdays.
