What’s on this site? (A guide for new visitors and a refresher for existing users)
This site is in 2 parts:
- A Content Management System called WordPress
- A genealogy database called TNG
The database operates the same as most genealogy databases, showing data and relationships.
It is accessed through the tab labelled ‘Jacobs Tree’
This system allows me to store a variety of data that is not directly part of the genealogy database.
The main body of the screen is where selected information is displayed.
At the left and right are a selection of menus, some highlights are listed below
Use this to search within the WordPress system – all items are indexed and can be searched.
