A periodic reminder to download images of records you use on any site. This way you have the images. Remember: the site may go down; the site may no longer have the rights to display the images; you may decide or need to cancel your membership. Save digital media to your own devices. Make a copy for your own use on your own equipment. Linking to your online tree in your “account,” will require you to maintain that access. Save it. You’ll be glad you did later.
I’m not one for making resolutions, but a great way to get beyond brick walls and make new discoveries is to review what you’ve already located on one ancestor or family. This can be one you’ve already researched yourself or one that someone researched previously and you thought was “done.” They might not have been as “done” as you think or you may know more about research now than when you “finished” work on that ancestor years ago.
