    Article Synopsis

    Family History Silouette ImageFor genealogy in general, and Ancestry.com in particular, I prefer date month year: 12 Jan 2020 vs. Jan 12, 2020, but either of these is clear and works well. Be sure to include the spaces - they are necessary for Ancestry. I avoid writing dates as 12/1/2020 because that date is ambiguous and can be interpreted as either 1 Dec 2020 (American) or 12 Jan 2020 (European).
