Research Tips

Be sure to evaluate the source of your information. Remember, you can't believe everything you read! Try to find the same information from two sources and always double check information you find on the internet with a family member or a record office.

Remember, most everyone has two family names: your father's, but also your mother's. Don't feel you must restrict your research to just your paternal family tree.
 
Be careful when researching over the internet - be sure before subscribing to websites or genealogical sites that you feel are sure to give you information - you don't want to waste your money.
