Art of Family History | Episode #029
How are you using genealogy worksheets to help discover your family history?
Let’s face it, genealogy worksheets are a research staple for family historians to use to track discoveries and build a picture of their ancestors’ life.
They range in complexity from single-page family group records to detailed multi-page, multi-purpose documents. They are the first genealogy tool many family history enthusiasts use to capture vital facts such as birth, death, and marriage. You can also use them to track what you’ve discovered and prompt you where to look next.
In episode 29 of the Art of Family History, I’m exploring genealogy worksheets and the different ways to use them to assist in your research.
Watch now to find out my thoughts on:
- the value of genealogy worksheets
- four different ways to use them
- three questions to ask to know which worksheet is the right fit for you.
There is no “one-size-fits-all” tool. Instead, it’s about finding the best fit for your goals and research style. As a result, you’ll likely require a complete toolkit of worksheets and resources to achieve your desired outcome. And remember that the way you research will change as you evolve as a family historian. So will the tools you use and the way that you use them. That’s completely normal, and it’s a good thing.
Let’s keep the conversation going in the comments. I’d love to hear your current genealogy goal and what type of worksheet is helping you achieve it.
