Detailed chronology seems to be a basic method used during my many Jones surname tree climbing adventures. This notebook contains my research into the Jones surname from (Old) Rappahannock County 1656 - 1692. It was some of my early work, so it is called "retrospective" analysis as compared to "regression" analysis [notebooks 245, 246 ], but it is basically the same process. Using dates on one side, squares and circles in the middle, and associated surnames, it shows a method which has over the years been very helpful.
The following three pages show the method, and represents the dates 1692 - 1689. Color coding was also used to keep the folks identified and separated.
Edward Jones, John Jones, Roderick Jones, and Richard Jones all come into play in the first pages shown.
Connecting points to associated surnames and certain topics are included.
A method which may help connect the dots is contained within the pages of this notebook.
