You may have asked yourself: “I can do a lot by myself, but is there somewhere I can go if I get stuck and need help?” “I feel like I have done everything I know how to do. Who can help me do more?” “What are family history centers for?” “Should I consider professional genealogists?” Using techniques discussed in previous episodes, you will be able to do a lot of family history work on your own. Sometimes, however, it is necessary to get help at a family history center or to work with a professional genealogist. In this episode, Jesse and Tom will show you the people available to help you solve your family history problems, as well as how to find them.
The first step in discovering your story is reaching out to parents, grandparents—any relative that can share stories, photos, or other information with you. Using the FamilySearch Photos and Stories, you can capture, preserve, and share what you find. As you do, you will find yourself on the path to discovering your own story.
Step three is to grow your family tree by searching historical records on FamilySearch.org. Your ancestors' everyday milestones and experiences—like birth, marriage, and death—often created historical records that have been indexed and made searchable online. Use Search to find more details about the people in your family story.
