Researching for information on your ancestors and distant relatives can be a lifelong passion. It’s a great way to learn about your personal connection to history and perhaps to discover something about yourself as well.

But do you have any genealogy goals other than continuing to search? Is it proving or disproving a family story? Is it identifying who is in that old picture? Is it tracking as many ancestors as you can? Is it locating as many descendants as you can of a specific set of ancestors?

Think about what your genealogy goal is and how you are working to achieve it.

And it’s ok to just want to locate more information–there’s fun in that too.

But sometimes a little direction is helpful.

What are your genealogy goals?

  1. I’m trying to find just when and where each line in my tree got to the USA. So far I have two Mayflower passengers and several Revolutionary Patriots. Still have a couple brick walls but still working on it. I’m doing this to preserve our family history for our grandkids.
