I don’t know where you all came from, but thank you all so much for following my page! I’m afraid posting will be a bit sporadic in the coming two weeks with finals looming, but everything will smooth out after that. I also have a giveaway coming up soon, so keep an eye out!
if you’re like me and your new project needs AN ACTUAL TON OF FAMILY TREES BECAUSE WOW LOOK AT ALL THESE CHARACTERS AND HOW THEY ARE RELATED
Then I suggest this site. It is incredibly easy to use, you can make notes, add birth and death dates, etc. The only thing I can’t figure out how to denote is if a character was adopted into a family, but that can be under notes.

So yup. I suggest it highly.
Truer words were never spoken…

But as many have discovered, finding a lost city can be the easy part — what happens next is when things get interesting…
