Looking for More Clues to Your Family History

A great resource for family history are your living relatives. Take an opportunity to call them and ask them questions. Whether over the phone, by email or at family gatherings make a record of what you learned. Ideally you could digitally record the interview, but at minimum take a few notes so the information is not lost. As you search for information further back in time your oldest living relatives will be your best source. Don't forget that a great aunt may be able to tell you about your grandparents or great grandparents. If you are the oldest living relative take time to record what you know and share it with your children and grandchildren.
