How Do You Know It?

Are you stuck on a problem? Get off the computer. Write down everything you think you know about an ancestor. Don't refer to your records or materials---write from memory.

Why? Because that's often how people research--from what they think they know, not what they actually know.

Now go and look at the records you have on this ancestor. How much of what you thought you knew did you really know?
