Hindsight is 20/20 isn’t it? We’ve all made mistakes with our genealogy research, especially when we were starting out. After a couple years of doing research that I couldn’t count on, I ended up starting over completely. If you’re getting started in genealogy research, you can save yourself a lot of time and frustration by doing things right from the outset.
I’ve identified 10 things I wish I’d known when I started doing genealogy research and I share them in this Orderly Roots guide. Topics covered include:
- Figuring out what information you can trust
- Asking for help
- Finding time for genealogy research
- Staying focused
- Paying attention to collateral lines
When you first start finding your roots it’s so easy to get carried away the excitement and end up with a mess. You don’t have to do everything perfectly. But taking time to learn a little now can save you a lot of time later on as your family tree grows.
