Database Info & Key

The FredQuest database of people is constructed using “The Master Genealogist” and the companion program, “Second Site” by John Cardinal.

The list of people, event types, memos and images are filtered before uploading.  The website only includes those ancestors & cousins that are deceased and whose information has been sourced.  Event types are limited to those listed below and may (if known) include the related date, location and relevant notes.  Images may include one embedded portrait and possibly a marriage and gravemarker photo (linked icon next to event).
