Beginning Your Genealogical Journey
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

In this post, I share with you a great presentation that will help you get started in researching your ancestors. It is full of great information, recommendations, and tips.

Once a month I feature a presentation that is available on Las Villas del Norte (the official premium genealogy group for our Mexican genealogy community). These presentations have a focus on researching Mexico or are about methodology that can be applied to researching our Mexican and Spanish Colonial Ancestry.

This month's presentation that I want to make you aware of is that of professional genealogist Dee Pavey and it is titled "Beginning Your Genealogical Journey".

The summary of the presentation is: "This presentation helps the beginner to get started in genealogy, even if they know little about it. Topics discussed are: What to do first, genealogy programs, documents, photographs, searching online and off, and putting it all together."

This presentation provides a great wealth of knowledge on how to get started in researching your ancestors. 

The following topics are discussed:

  • Getting Started
  • Keeping Track of Your Research
  • Genealogy Programs
  • Getting Organized
  • Searching for Records
  • Searching Tips
  • and more...
