Clan MacLellan Ancestral Trees of Life

The Ancestral Genealogy of our Families.

Help

Welcome to our genealogy pages. This Help page will give you a short overview of how to get around and get the most out of our site. It will hopefully give you the basic navigation tools needed to make your visit both enjoyable and informative without a lot of difficulty.

Please keep in mind that this section is in no way a complete how-to guide, and you may have to be a registered user and logged in to see/use some of these features.

Many of us use one genealogical program or another and nearly all of them have a very graphical look to them. You can see your family group sheets, display charts, etc. This website is much the same except that, instead of it being on your computer, it is on the internet.

This walk-through will introduce you to the primary functions of the site.

The "Images" are image mapped, holding your mouse over a particular area of interest will display text. Clicking on any of the following areas will go directly to the particular topic:
