Lessons for the Budding DIY Researcher

Sometimes, you really just want to attempt to undertake your own research, and I applaud that too.

So to help you out, I have created a small series of lessons; although in no way can it even begin to cover the mountain of subtle things to watch out for while trying to piece together one's ancestry. That is something only an experienced researcher has learned over time (and why it can be very beneficial to hire a good one).

Lesson 1: starting your own tree research

Lesson 2: setting the records straight

Lesson 3: those important documents

Lesson 4: alternative documents and information sources

Lesson 5: how to save your research

Lesson 6: who's who - naming patterns
