start with what you know - genealogy
Start With What You Know - those aunts, uncles, and cousins can provide you with valuable pieces of information. Have a notebook and a tape recorder handy to record all those wonderful stories that many older people love to tell younger relatives - those stories of what it was like growing up, where they lived...what their jobs were, what they did for fun, etc. You will find valuable pieces of information - your pieces of the puzzle to build upon. Also check out the attics, the basements, and the closets for treasures like birth certificates and old pictures. You may be very surprised what you find!
