No one cares about your research the way you do. Professionals are limited by time–and your budget. Much of what will get done to discover and preserve your family history rests on your shoulders.
Learn all you can about the records where you ancestors lived and the places and time period in which they lived—and:
- research methodically;
- report accurately;
- track what you use;
- cite what you use.
That’s a good start and hopefully some discoveries will have you wagging your genealogy tail–just like Riley in the illustration.
