Tips & Tricks
Remember to document everything you find on your ancestors.

Begin with the latest census available and work backwards. U.S. Census records have been take since 1790. Before 1790 you can use Tax Lists and other local lists that might have been compiled, according to the state you are researching in.

Meaningful genealogy requires thought. Develop a plan “ "Why am I doing genealogy?" Set goals of what you plan to accomplish in a reasonable time frame, i.e., go back 4 generations, go back to the immigrant ancestor, do only my father™s male line, etc.
