If you are able to please get from behind your computer and hit the streets to do some genealogical research. Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of information available online but there is so much that has not been put online yet. Check out this episode as the panelist discuss how to properly prepare, what to do while on the ground, and how to distill the information you collect while researching offline.
Just a little video of some fo the records I’ve acquired over the years while doing genealogical research.
I just wanted to offer some words of encouragement to those on the genealogical journey, DON’T GIVE UP! Genealogist are chosen and you have been chosen to give your ancestors a voice. Even if you haven’t found that document, that ancestor, or that connection to a relative you’re been looking for tirelessly, DON’T GIVE UP! Keep researching, you will find it when it’s time. Sometimes the answers we are looking for are already in the documents we have and we might have to take a break and look at them with fresh eyes as some say. Just stay positive and focused in your research, you this!
