This journey can become a hobby, passion, vocation, career, or a legacy.



This next level ( climbing “your” family tree ) highlights a number of areas you should review when starting off for the first time and which should be reviewed periodically to keep you on track. You can check out some or all of the articles or come back to them later as needed. After this your next step could be to go to the “New to the Wiki” section for information on how to best utilize this wiki to help you build a strong foundation for your future research.

By its very nature, your genealogical research is a never ending quest as there is a constant influx of new online information and every new contact you make could add to your knowledge and your family history records. Many people have a tendency to expand their research beyond their direct family line due to their enjoyment of the research process itself and their interest in pursuing the world family tree. You have to decide when and what you want to get out of this endeavor and how much time you are willing and able to put into it.

Ultimately, the most important point to remember is that you should always pace yourself during this venture. There will be times when new information comes fast and furious due to a breakthrough of a brick wall, as well as times where nothing is found for weeks or months. Your enthusiasm will also waver up and down in relationship to more important issues in your life but just remember that once you have completed the two time sensitive critical steps the other genealogy data will always be there waiting for you. Pace yourself so that you do not burn out and loose interest and if you document your research with irrefutable sources then others like your children or your children’s children can pick up where your legacy left off.
