Tips to Make a Family Tree
- Start with what you know ,you and your living relatives.
- Ask your relatives for using their memories and family documents such as Bibles, birth and marriage certificates, journals and military records.
- Review websites to see what others have discovered about your family lines. Be careful for some of the family trees on line are not accurate.
- Focus on primary sources of tree such as copies of birth, census, death and marriage records. Many of these available on line for free or a nominal fee.
- Be patient – it might take a long time to uncover your genealogy.
- Consider CAPITALIZING the surname – this will help it stand when reviewing your records
- List dates as on 1 Jan 1890 to avoid confusion over the formats such as dd/mm/yy or mm/dd/yy
- List locations as City/Township, County, State, Country. For example: Las Vegas, Harris County, Texas, USA
