- Oct 6, 2008There are numerous genealogy sites out there that feature an
assortment of articles on documentation of records for doing your
genealogy search. We will look at how genealogy sites and the tools
they offer will assist you to carry on a search.
Genealogy sites have plenty of tools that you use to keep records of
your searches, but keeping records is not enough. You must know where
to search next once you have found that piece of information that you
are looking for. Genealogists usually draw conclusions from their
records, to continue to dig deeper into the roots of their ancestry,
which is often referred to as and audit trail.
An 'audit trail' requires that the thought process and analysis be
included by documenting sources. Genealogy sites generally offer some
software that is capable of analysing the data and there are services
from expert genealogists.
The fees from experts vary from site to site, but they are not always
needed unless you get stuck and cannot find the additional
information that you are looking for in your search or if you cannot
go any further on your own....
