When we interview someone or obtain a document, artifact (item of clothing, tool, photograph, etc), or a copy of a record about our family, we should make a note of it. We should write the results we obtained and where the information came from on our “Results List.” 

Results List

People I talked to, papers I read, or objects I looked at                                            Any new information?

Where did I get the information or where is it located now?
Example: My Auntie Salote                                                                                    Yes
Baptismal record of my Grandfather Samuela Fakatou                                              Yes. His LDS baptismal date
In interview notes dated June 2000 in my file behind her family group record.
From the ward records in Felemea

We also need to keep a paper with ideas of what we want to do next. When we have time to do work on family history, it will remind us of what we had in mind.

Interview old people from Felemea when they come to visit next month.
Record Grandfather’s baptismal date on his Family Group Record
