Tips & Tricks
Genealogy is the search for our ancestors. Family history is the study of the lives they led. Using the information from each area provides us with a true picture of our family.
[Basic Genealogy]
Prepare a census timeline before you begin. Review what you will find in the census you are searching. Work backwards from the most recent census. Expect spelling and age variations.
Primary evidence is personal testimony or a record created shortly after an event by a person with personal knowledge of the facts.
