How Do I Start My Family History?
1. Write Down What You Already Know about Your Family. Start with yourself. Use a pedigree chart and fill in what you already know about you and your family. If you do not know exact dates and places, estimate them.
2. Review What Is Missing. Circle any missing or incomplete information on your chart. Decide what information you want to find first.
3. Find Out What Information Already Exists. Gather your records. Talk to your family. Search other sources, ie. www.familysearch.org.
4. Share What You Have and Decide What You Want to Do Next.
