JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: The Best Advice To A New Genealogy Researcher #general

Diane Jacobs <thegenie@...>

Just to add on to this line of thought. I don't usually have to do this,
as I place as *notes*, all documents found, photo info, newspaper entries,
inquiries >from other researchers under each family name I am searching. I
include everything that is in that record in the note. Then when I do find
some link, I go through all my notes which are organized by year and then
document type (ie. census, vital record) and place those that are related to
my family under the correct person's information. This also helps to link
others who are related.

The best advice I ever received is good for genealogists at all levels.
Researchers should go through their files, photos, notes, etc. periodically
to review what they already have. Something that was found and filed away in
the past may now provide even more information because of subsequent
research that casts new light on the old find.
