Amy Grisak, begins her article with a “WARNING” label! Sleep deprivation, walking through cemeteries and obsessive tendencies about scraps of paper when it comes to genealogical research. The article which appears in the 2013 Farmers’ Almanac is titled Digging up Roots – The INS and OUTS of creating your own family tree.
You can read the article at http://usgenweb.org/farmer_almanac2012.pdf. It does not matter if you are a beginner wanting to know the basics of genealogical research or someone who has researched for a long time and now wanting to get back to the basics..this article is packed full of helpful information.
Thanks, Amy for great information.
