New to Genealogy?

So you've decided to research your family, good for you!  But where do you start on this monumental task?  Most people will tell you to start at the beginning but where is the beginning you ask.  Just like that giant oak first began as a tiny seed that's how you must start too.  Gather information a little bit at a time, ask questions, interview family members.  Visit our FACTS page to find more tips on how to grow your tree.
