Where do I start?
The best way to
start is to think about what information you would like
Download a basic family chart here (like the one
pictured below), print it out and fill it out with what
you do know about your family.
Ask around your
family for any birth, marriage or death certificates of
your ancestors. Perhaps someone in the family has
already started a tree and can give you some information
to start with.
Download and fill out this quick survey sheet to
help me see what you already know about your family, and
the types of records you are interested in. Email it
back to me.
