Getting Started in Genealogy There is a lot of good information on the internet on getting started in genealogy by some very knowledgable people, so I’m not going to try to duplicate that effort. It is, however, a topic that deserves to be included Provided below are links to some good sites on getting started in genealogy.

“Family History is the hobby of searching for and recording information about your family. It involves finding out about your ancestors. Genealogy is the science of finding relationships and event information (i.e. when and where were they born, married and died) of your ancestors.”

Basic records
- how to g et started
It would be almost impossible to find a great-grandmother for instance, if all you knew was her name, and that she came from Denmark. Our records come from hundreds of local agencies, and there is no huge index or computer file that covers all of them. In order to find a person, you must have some basic information. Otherwise, you will not know in which records to look for him or her. Information to get you started could be:
  • Full name plus either Date and place of birth, marriage or death
    or An exact address in a year with a census.
Things that could give you a clue...
If you only have scanty information about your ancestors, the first thing to do would naturally be to ask elderly relatives or friends what they remember. Make notes of names, places and dates, although they may not be totally accurate. If there are none left to ask, you may find valuable clues in for instance:
Certifcates of birth, death, etc

OK, you've been bitten by the genealogy bug!
You found a bit of information, and now you want to find out more.... but you are not sure how to go about this... so you ask.....
How do I find information on my Ancestor?
Once you have a name of an ancestor you will naturally want to find out all you can about them. 
There are some basic steps most researchers generally go by, which are outlined below. While this is geared towards those who emigrated from other countries to the United States, it can be adapted to fit other countries also.
First you will need to start at home, andsearch records and items that may be in your own, or a relative's home.  Attics and hope chests
contain a variety of helpful items - letters, photographs (hopefully with names and dates written on the backs), baby books, important papers brought over from the old country. Take some time to go through these items, and make sure they are carefully and properly preserved.
Family records of births, marriages and deaths are another great source. Books that mourners sign at the funeral home will tell you who was alive at the time of the death, cards sent to congratulate a couple on their

What is Genealogy?

Genealogy is a written record of someone’s ancestor’s and living family. Simply, it shows event information such as births, marriages and deaths to establish kinship. However, it can also lead you into a historical investigation of your ancestor’s.
How to begin?
There is only one place to begin, with yourself! The obvious facts are your name, date of birth, your parents’ names, any brothers or sisters, places of residence and any other important events in your life. Make a note of all living relatives and draw a rough family tree with yourself at the bottom. Even if you can only go as far back as your grandparents it’s a good start, especially if you have their birth, marriage or death certificates. Don't lose sight of the fact that although there may be only ONE of you and you may have only had 2 parents and 4 grandparents, you had 8 great grandparents, 16 gg grandparents, 32 ggg grandparents, 64 gggg grandparents 128 ggggg grandparents etc. Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies (HALS) was set up several years ago by combining the Hertfordshire County Records Office and the County Local Studies Library. It is situated at County Hall, Hertford, and has an area with microfilm and microfiche readers set aside for family history research as well as Internet access. They have resently launched a facility that allows you to order birth, death and marriage certificates over the Internet. The address is

Getting Started in Genealogy
by Liz Walker (Article was originally published in Tulsa Kids Magazine in the "10 Tips" column.) Over two hundred and seventy years ago, a twenty one year man named William Dill, stepped off an Irish immigrant ship onto the shores of a new colony called New York. William settled in the fertile farmlands of Delaware. It was there he started a family with his young wife, Mary. William and Mary were my (7 times) great grandparents. They were the first members of my mother's paternal family to venture out of Europe and into a new world. On my father's side of the family, my Aunt Marcia has been the chief genealogist. Her efforts are still a work in progress. With names like Smith and Miller those branches of the family tree may take a bit longer to fill out. But my aunt has one advantage that the Dills didn't: a computer. Research sites like,,, and are enhancing the age old methods and bringing the county courthouse or the distant library to your home computer. Computer software like Family Treemaker or Reunion for (MacIntosh computers) has made charting the family tree easier than it used to be. Yet even with all the new technology, genealogy still requires time spent searching the old fashioned way, in person at libraries, courthouses, and cemeteries. My Aunt Marcia once became so immersed in her genealogy work that she almost spent the night in an Indiana library. She wasn't able to gather her materials quickly enough when the library's closing announcement was sounded. By the time she reached the exit, the door was locked and bolted. She and her companions spent several long, panicky minutes searching through dark, empty hallways for an escape route before they found someone to let them out through the basement.

Getting Started Everyone has their own reasons for doing genealogy. Some people like puzzles and consider tracing family roots as an entertaining pastime. Others do it to preserve the memories and knowledge of older family members for future generations. Some people use genealogy as a means of reestablishing or reinforcing ties with distant family members. Others would like to demonstrate their relationship to famous (or infamous) personages. Some would like to write a family history. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints do it for religious reasons. No matter what your reasons, doing your family genealogy will entertain you, bring you personal rewards and leave a legacy for future generations. How do you get started doing your family's genealogy? There are certain basic steps that will make the process easier, quicker and more rewarding. These steps will avoid duplication of work, increase the value of your research, and make doing your family genealogy more fun. These steps are:
