Tuesday's Tip: Ancestry.com

Use Ancestry.com? It is by far one of the most popular helpful websites for family historians and genealogists.

Follow the hints. Accept only ones you are sure of and ignore the rest. You can always come back to them. Always document your sources thought. Do not get lazy. Remember too that not every database is indexed in such a way that it will reveal hints. You may still have to actually look through some. Check out the Card Catalog. You can search the Card Catalog by title or keyword.

Read through the message boards on Ancestry.com. Often others can help here. You may be able to help someone too.
