Where Do I begin?
Family History can be fun and exciting. At the same time it can seem overwhelming. The most common question a beginner has is: "Where do I begin?" The answer is simple, begin with yourself. Record what you know and build on that foundation.
I belong to a family, I am the mother of 8 beautiful children, I am a sister, daughter and wife. I am a mother who knows. I am also an Accredited Genealogist. I have a B.A. degree in Family and Community History from Brigham Young University. I am a Masters student in Instructional Design & Educational Technology at the University of Utah. I currently teach Family History & Genealogy classes part-time at Brigham Young University and online classes at Salt Lake Community College. My research interests include: United States, Latin America, Spain & Scandinavian countries.
