Step 7. Track your research
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.”
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
