Try to go beyond the facts

Genealogy is not just the collection of names and facts. At first your summaries will be a list of facts but remember your ancestors were living human beings who interacted with the people around them. Each document is a snap shot of your ancestor and each detail should be captured and analyzed. Try to envision how each fact might impact your family’s lives. Try to go beyond the list of facts. Interpret the facts and use the summaries to tell the story of your family.

    Hi Stephen, we’d be interested in talking to you about a Polish webinar for GSP (www.genpa.org). Could you please shoot me an email at execdir at genpa.org, or give me yours? Thanks!
