TOOLS 4 Genealogy

great site for help with Ethnic/ immigrants heritrage. Breaking through the brick walls. Downloads for charts, forms and templates aids. Bookstore, Soundex Code Generator, Resource Guide, along with other things are what makes this site one you would want to bookmark

Once you have read this blog post, you really shouldn't have any reason NOT to dig into your family roots.

#1~ Join a Genealogical Society
(Still have to do this one myself)

#2Check out the local public / university Libraries.
(The local Library is where I got started. Go to the Genealogy section , just look around , up and down the rows of books. Check out the computer stations~which most will have a FREE hook up to ANCESTRY.com. )

#3 Check out the LDS Family History Libraries.
(find on close by from the FAMILY.ORG site.

#4 CYNDISLIST is one of the best sites out there for resourses and links of all kinds. I do believe that almost EVER person out there doing genealogy has used this site as a starting point and still with her today!

Most of the online reasearch is free, so you can get pretty deep into your family roots and not spending a penny !

#1 the time factor~why, just start with one person and go from there. I started with my dad at the time of his death back in Dec. 2005. and now have gone back about 12 generations just the SARGENT pedigree.

#2 Don't bite off more than you can chew~take small bite size portions. Everyone starts with the "spoon size" method. Just take is slow. As you grow and hunger more , the wanting will come around.

Get the kids involved ~ NOW!

Love this post. Most of all my keepsakes and photo albums are safely with my daughter at her house and can be enjoyed by my granddaughters now.

The Junior Toolkit is a great start for even the adult newbie!
