After looking at what is known about your ancestor, write down what you want to learn about them. If there is information missing, or if there are not adequate sources to verify information or relationships, you may want to include this in your research goals. Maybe you want to find their birth information or a marriage date. Maybe you want to locate the names and birth information of all their children. Choose 3 to 4 goals to start with. You can always add more later, but having just a few will help you stay focused and feel more successful.
Prepare a research log to use for the next steps, and be sure to watch the video for an explanation of why using a research log is a good idea!
