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


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

                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.

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.
