Vlog #2

I promise these will get better :). The point of this Vlog is to let people know although DNA is great and it will not replace actual research that needs to be done to research your ancestry. I got so caught up with trying to connect with DNA cousins that I stopped actually researching, for me DNA should be an aid to the research I have done.

Are you planning a research trip this summer? Where are some of the places you are going? Have you set goals for your trip? I hope I plan to go down to Alabama and meet some relatives as well as do some research I haven’t created a research plan yet but I think is important to have some sort of a plan so you’re not wasting valuable research time.
