Discovering Your Family Tree

Doing research on your family’s genealogy is a wonderful way to learn more about your ancestors. Although most families know some information about their “family tree,” most still have entire branches that have yet to be explored. Discovering more about your family’s history can be a wonderful and interesting activity that can bring your family together. You can research your past way easier than before with the help of the Internet. When you are researching your family’s history, many sources are useful for getting information, such as boxes of old family photos, written public records, and even stories passed on by older relatives. You can introduce your children and grandchildren to some of the wonderful relatives that they will never get to meet by doing your research now and recording the important facts. When you document your family’s history, you have the satisfaction of knowing that you are gathering informaiton that will be handed down to your relatives for generations to come.

Where You Should Start

A good place to start is with yourself, then work your way back into your family’s history. Get down in writing all of the family history and any other details that you know, then you will have a good idea of what kind of research you still need to do. Always keep careful records, and cite the source of the information in your records. Although you might get a lot of “word of mouth” information from relatives, you should always substantiate this information by researching original documents, such as birth, death and marriage certificates. Even so, you can get many important clues through verbal information that can help you in your fact gathering. If you find some log sheets and forms that are designed specifically for the purpose of genealogical research, your record keeping can be made lots easier. You can make your own templates to suit your needs, or you can find many free templates online. Storing these pages in a binder, along with page protectors that you can use to store associated photos and documents, can help you stay organized.

Sources of Information

Verbal histories, birth, death, marriage and divorce certificates, baptismal records, family Bibles, military records, immigration papers, and even journals and diaries can all be helpful sources of information. Old photo albums can also be extremely useful. As you are doing your research, you might be fortunate enough to discover some old photographs that you didn’t even know existed. You might also enjoy making copies of a few of these old photos by using a scanner and a printer. These vintage photographs can then be displayed in 4×6 picture frames and you will have no need to worry about damaging them as you would the fragile originals. Some of the online sources that you can make use of are search engines, web sites, and online databases with family record search tools.

Utilizing What You Find

Once you begin to research your family’s history, you might find your relatives will be interested in what you are doing. Most people would love to find out the history of their family, but they don’t want to take the time necessary to do the research. You should share the information you find with other relatives, so that everyone can benefit from your efforts. There are even decorative charts you can purchase for the purpose of documenting one’s family tree, which can make a nice gift for relatives, especially when placed in family picture frames.
