Changes in this revision.

Page titles changed to match the page numbers in the PDF version of the guide.

Table of Content has hyperlinks for all titles.

Material about report writing has been rewritten and now appears all in one place.

Level 1 Check List has been rewritten and added to the guide.

Changes in procedures.

There is only one test day scheduled each quarter on which you will be allowed to take one level exam or retake. See scheduling for details.

Level 1 Questionnaire is self assessing. No longer do you have to wait for a grade to be sent to you. The last item on the questionnaire explains how to create a personal code that is needed on the “Contact Information Form” to prove that the questionnaire was taken and passed. Be sure to make a record of that code. The easiest way to record it is to mark the box at the end to have responses emailed to you.

Clarification to requirements

The starting person of the four-generation project must be born in or before 1900 and married with children.

Four full four-generation reports were added to the samples page.
