Pioneers crossing the plains of Nebraska, by C.C.A. Christensen.

Many genealogies of members of the Church have been handed down for several generations. If you are the recipient of one of these genealogies, is it well-documented? Do your family group records show one or more sources of information for each event? Don't just settle for copying someone else's research, cite the evidence that proves it! Careful documentation reduces errors, unwanted duplication, and may help uncover an overlooked ordinance.
