The goal of this project is to document how do effective genealogical research. There is a lot of bad research out there and it just leads people astray. My personal goal is to be as accurate as possible in my own research and I want to help others get their trees RIGHT. I want to use this page to help my fellow family historians understand my methods.
Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Marci Abraham. But I am sure there are others who have great ideas to contribute!
1. Always be willing to make corrections as new information is discovered. A tree is a living organism. Cut off branches that aren't right and let new ones grow!
2. Verify everything. Don't just trust what someone told you. Make sure the details align with the facts you know. (This goes double for copying from someone else's tree. They might have copied someone...do you want their mistakes in your tree?)
