The Family tree chart I used was created by Microsoft:
FT Chart (You will need Excel to open this file). The Genealogy software I use: Roots magic, Family Tree Maker, and Legacy. Though I use these particular programs I'm not very fond of some of their charts and family reports, so I usually like to create my own Charts or Reports using Microsoft Word, Excel, or Adobe Photoshop.

   My name is Terrence Garnett and I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. I've always been interested in my family history since I was a child. My research began the summer after I graduated high school in June of 2006. If you're related please feel free to contact me.

   I am extremely grateful to the people who've helped me along the way in any capacity.
