Take A Second Look … It Costs You Nothing.

There are a variety of genealogy software and online programs available. Hopefully you have chosen one that you are comfortable with. It may take time to get use to the program and understand all it has to offer. Make sure you look the program over carefully so you understand how it works.
Finally, you were tasked with starting a Genealogy Journal. This will be your “go to” book when you are traveling and interviewing family members. Unless you are out of the house researching, it is best to keep this book in your research space so that you know where it is and can update it as you come across important information.
Prepare sorting boxes for photos you want to keep, photos you need to identify, and photos you would like to give away to relatives. In a future blog post, we will discuss what to do with the photos you have chosen to keep.
For safe measure bring two recording devices. Always test your devices before the interview and listen to the recording in its entirety when you return home. Make sure to complete this portion of the project by transcribing the interview and sharing it on your tree or with other relatives.
Select which ancestor you will be moving forward with during our research portion of this challenge. As you come across documents pertaining to your ancestor, remember to analyze, compare and resolve any conflicts involving those sources.
