Researching family history is fun and rewarding.

On this page I'll describe how I went about researching my family tree in the hope that it will inspire others to give it a try. I'll talk about the process I used and any tools or software I found helpful.

I might also include links to interesting genealogy web sites I came across in the course of doing my research, such as:

National Archives and Records Administration Web Site:

Research Tips

Here I might put some tips about researching a family tree, for example:

Be sure to evaluate the source of your information. Remember, you can't believe everything you read!

Remember, most everyone has two family names: your father's, but also your mother's. Don't feel you must restrict your research to just your paternal family tree.
