Tips

Remember that each generation doubles the number of ancestors. It's easy to get lost if you don't plan ahead for your trip.
Focus on one or two families. The others will still be there when you get to them.
 
When taking notes, use standard size paper, one surname per page. Record the source and identifying information so you can find it again, and the date and place you found info (volume and page). Use only accepted abbreviations (no homespun stuff). Understand basic terminology.
