Finding ancestors and other relatives – that’s what genealogy is all about, right? And there are tons of information out there on all of them (even if some of them intentionally seem to have made it difficult for others to track them down!). The trick is, once you’ve learned something about an ancestor or relative, put that information into a readily-accessible, “user-friendly” form that will help you proceed to more research. Everyone has a different idea or style, but this presentation will give some suggestions and some food for thought on options.
