The Hunt

Once you have started your own Ancestral Hunt, you will soon find yourself accumulating many family materials. As you document stories and traditions, gather photographs and letters, and excitedly trace down every piece of paper with a possible clue on it, you may find that all of those bits and pieces are slowing you down, especially as you begin to enter unknown territory.

Imagine a hunter going into an uncharted forest. How will he find his way back? How will he keep track of where he has been? How will he stop himself from walking in circles and repeating the same steps? What can he use to keep from getting lost?
