  • Can a first cousin once removed…RETURN?
  • A pack rat is hard to live with, but makes a fine ancestor.
  • Genealogy is tracing yourself back to better people.
  • I think my ancestors had several “Bad Hair” days.
  • That’s strange: half my ancestors are WOMEN!
  • I researched my family tree…and apparently, I don’t exist.

Are you facing a brick wall in your family research? have you checked the following documents.

  • BAPTISM, CHRISTENING, CONFIRMATION
  • CEMETERY DEEDS
  • FAMILY BIBLE CONTAINING VITAL RECORDS
  • FUNERAL MEMORIAL CARDS
  • CHURCH MEMBERSHIP
  • CHURCH MINUTES

As a family historian, do you have friends and family ask you how to get started in family research? This is a hard question to answer in a few minutes. Refer them to WHERE DO I START? Hints and Tips for Beginning Genealogists with On-line resources to help them get started in this fun hobby. Makes a great gift!
