Presentation: How Do I Start My Family History

It is so important to start out with a clear idea of what you already know about your family and what you want to learn.  Two simple resources can save you a lot of time and keep you on track in your research:

The Family Tree Worksheet

The Family Group Sheet

These are only two of the resources that are explained in the presentation, How Do  Start My Family History.  Most people that I provide assistance for have never filled out either of these two helps.  They are already searching for ancestors online without concrete details such as event dates and places.  Researching that way almost certainly lead you to a brick wall or to adopting people into your family that are really not related.  Beginning with a clear picture also makes it easier for those whom you turn to for direction.

Below is a brief selection from the genealogy presentation, "How Do I Start My Family History." The Family Tree Chart and the Family Group Sheet are helpful to keep them with you when you research at libraries and archives because they provide a snapshot of important details that can help you locate historical records.  To find out how to schedule a presentation visit Ask Me to Present.  See My Entire Social Presence.
