Seize Quartiers refers to a four generation pedigree and literally means a person's "sixteen quarters" i.e. their 16 great-great grandparents. It is borrowed from the heraldic tradition used to prove one's nobility.
An ideal way to start your family tree as it gives a broad picture of your whole family's recent generations.
This comprehensive package aims to find full information on the four generations up to your 16 great-great grandparents (with some information on your 3rd great-grandparents). The information gathered can include addresses, travel, reports from newspapers, employment/profession, military history, names and dates relating to siblings, other marriages, and more.
