[[Principles of Family History Research|Principles of Family History Researc] [[Image:Gotoarrow.pn] Step 5. Use the Information

Step 5: Evaluate and Use the information.

After you have searched records you are ready to use the information you found.

To make best use of the information—

  • Evaluate what you found.
  • Transfer needed information to the appropriate forms.
  • Organize the new records.
  • Share your findings.

When you have completed this step, you will have new information organized on family group record and/or pedigree charts. You may also have recorded the information in personal or family history notes.

When you have learned all you wish to learn about a family, share your information with others by contributing it to Internet databases like New FamilySearch, or by preparing and publishing a book, or article, or putting up an Internet site.

You will also be ready to start the process again and return to Step 1 to research another objective or individual.
