NOW is the time to ask YOUR Great Aunt Lizzie about HER mom and dad. I often wish I had asked more questions as a child.

To get started in genealogy, begin by recording, at least privately, the experiences and memories of your immediate family. Write them down. Tell them to your grandkids. Slip a copy into the family Bible or other safe place. Also, label those family photos! Then, work your way back through the generations and, as the secrets of the past are revealed, remember to focus on the courage, compassion, and hard work of our ancestors. Highlight the good stuff, honor the struggles, and look for the lessons to be learned.

Photograph all those old records, even old photos, and share and store them digitally, but also please keep at least one hard copy of your family's data, being especially careful to hang on to any original documents and preserve them in an acid-free environment.
