Excerpt: Sample Tips

Here are some tips you’ll find in the Best Family History Projects eBook:

  1. Set concrete goals. Having a clear purpose in mind—such as finding out where your maternal roots lie—is essential to any genealogy project, especially those involving DNA tests.
  2. Write as you work. If you have a specific publishing goal in mind, take notes as you research. Start filling in a research report (for example) as soon as you start a new project—and keep it up as you go. This will help you track your findings in real time, making it easy to reference them later.
  3. Set the best resolution. When scanning photos to share in your projects or with relatives, set the resolution at 300 dpi (dots per inch) or more. If you want to enlarge the photo, go even higher—up to 1200 dpi.
