Each lesson will be a self contained module. Some will be more difficult than others and graded accordingly.

Examination of this chart demonstrates the place a person has within a family group as well as the continuity of this family group with the new generation. There is a natural and lineal continuity from one generation to the next.

1. Use the Family Relationship Chart to map the extended family that exists around you.
2. In consultation with other family members, try to establish a similar family relationship chart for your great grand parents.
