    • Hello,

      New to genealogy? That’s great! It’s a wonderful hobby if you love history and family. Getting started is easy. What I did years ago was call up every relative I knew well enough to just call and asked them very specific questions about their parents, kids, grandparents etc and asked them if they would share any old photos if I paid to have them reproduced (today with scanners and printers that’s so much easier to do). I wrote everything down on regular paper – I was so new I didn’t even know there were sheets made just for this (which you can download and print out for free at ). At the same site you can download a free program called PAF if you want to use the computer. PAF is very good – I used it for years before switching to Legacy, a paid program. Use this program to enter all the info your family gives you, and everything you can remember. This is step one. If I remember correctly, when I started I wound up with more than 300 names of mostly living people and a few grandparents and great grandparents.

      No need to buy books which are advertised and pushed hard, especially at first. has hundreds of free articles on the how to aspects. They cover everything any book does. I know – I have a half dozen titles and the only one I use regularly anymore is the “Handybook for Genealogists”. If you really get into genealogy it’s worth it, but no need for it to begin. Also – DO NOT get lured into buying a membership in Ancestry or other paid sites especially before you’ve learned enough to make them really worth the money. You can get the same thing FREE! At your public library – almost all libraries have memberships for their patrons use in either Ancestry or Heritage Quest (very similar to Ancestry) and you can access all their records right at your library. Then you can decide if it is worth it or not.

      As for finding new living relatives – that can be more difficult than finding older relatives who are deceased. Privacy has become a major issue. That makes finding the details that link people together hard if they are living (easy to find ‘Joe Smith’ on Google but hard to find who his relatives are so you know if he’s “yours”). I’ve also discovered something sad – most of the relatives I’ve contacted aren’t interested really – UNLESS they are also doing genealogy.

      If you have any specific questions feel free to ask me.

  2. Hi,
    I have enjoyed reading your blog. I have found some of my family listed in it. I am trying to attach sources to each of my family names. Enoch Fleming & Elizabeth Palmer were my 3rd great grandparents. I am the daughter of Phyllis, d/o Jay S. Baker & Elotia Fern Hunsaker.
    Thanks so much for your help.
