With January 1st approaching, how’s this for a New Year’s Resolution: preserve your family history records online so that future generations can find them. Take your records – prepare now to begin scanning them and putting them online.
Bottom line: “If You Don’t Put It Online – Your Descendants Will Not Find It!”
It is that simple.
That is the central message of the online lecture that I gave Friday, November 13th.

Whether you’ve been researching your family history for 5 years – 15 years – or perhaps even 50 years – your search skills have improved year after year.
Now is the time to thoroughly review your research conclusions. You want to review and evaluate each person in your family tree. Reconfirm the dates/places of their vital events and upload their photos, stories and documents. Make sure that each person’s record is accurate and that all of your notes are attached.
Put that information online. Now.
