Revision as of 02:19, 11 November 2008

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.

Write the results you obtained and where the information came from on your “Results List.” 

Example:

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

                My Auntie Salote                                                                                           Yes
                Baptismal record of my Grandfather Samuela Fakatou                               Yes. His LDS baptismal date


 



Where did I get the information or where is it located now?                                 

         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 you have time to do work on family history, it will remind you of what you had in mind.

                                                                   TO DO LIST

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