Make a visit to a Genealogy (Family History) Library near you
(Note...see the very beginning of this blog for important steps on how to get started on your genealogy).
These are great places to visit. Inside most of these Libraries are computers for you to use; special genealogy software programs that have been downloaded onto their computers for your use; a book section containing many different family histories (according to surname); microfilm that you can order and view on their film strip machines; trained consultants who are very anxious to help you; and lots of free classes that will teach you the ins and outs of genealogy and researching.
So check your phone book or ask your local library about a genealogical library in your town. It just might be that your local library offers a special section in their building.
