10 Strategies for Building a Family Tree

Are you researching your family tree and want to do it right? How would you feel if you discovered that someone in your tree didn’t belong? Eager genealogists sometimes build inaccurate family trees. This session will provide 10 strategies to increase the odds that your tree is accurate. The strategies include where to start, how to keep track of and organize your research, and how to analyze the records you find. Practising these strategies will give you confidence as your family tree is extended. This presentation will benefit new and not so new genealogy researchers.
