Family Research Tips

Right.  So now you’re here, what do you need to do?

Step 1

The first thing that I want you to do is to take a piece of paper and a pen (or pencil), sit down, and gather your thoughts.  Now, divide the paper into 6 squares.  At the top of one write:

  • father
  • mother
  • father’s father
  • father’s mother
  • father’s mother
  • mother’s mother

Then, for each of these people, write as much of the following information as possible:

  • their full names
  • date and place of birth
  • date and place of marriage
  • date and place of death

At this point you have got yourself plus 2 generations – a total of 3 generations.  Well done!
