Re: Help I'm new
It depends on what your goals are. What are you trying to accomplish? For example, if you have recorded the basic facts about each person, perhaps you would like to find out the family stories on as many persons as possible. Just write these stories down. Perhaps you might want to find photographs. As far as who to research, pick your direct line, ie your parents, then grandparents and follow those lines as far back as you can. You don't have to buy the software programs.Keep your notes organized and dated, with sources. There are numerous sources on-line to help you with organizing your information.
