Who am I to tell you how to do genealogy? Since embarking on my genealogy research a decade ago, I have learned it from the ground up, made the mistakes, the many road trips and developed many methods to speed things along.
I became famous or more accurately, notorious, for being thrown out of libraries so folks can go home, my family rolling their eyes as I embarked on another recitation of our ancestors, and using all the toner in the photo printer.
Of course that all is forgotten with the guaranteed A on the kid’s class projects that need the last four generations of the family.
Along the way, I found it all… Pioneers, soldiers, patriots, bums, sordidness, history and struck genealogy gold–my connections to Daniel Boone and also to the Royal Line in England/Scotland.
So I will tell you what works for me, give you some ideas on arranging your collection of research papers and how to resolve that difficult lineage and more.
