Okay, you don't have to wait for Episode 6

The Genealogy Kids are right in the middle of a BIG project ... the making of our "How to Research Your Ancestor" series of videos.  We hope you've enjoyed Episodes 1-3, and we promise we're working on episodes 4-6.  But just in case you are anxious to get researching your ancestor and you don't want to wait for the rest of our "Tree Tips", we've decided to share with you our master plan.  These 6 steps (each step is featured in one of our videos) will help you to become a good researcher.  Within each video we demonstrate 3 "Tree Tips" ... so multiply 3 x 6 and that gives you ... 18 specific things to do to research your ancestor.  Hey, 18 is not a big number ... it fits on 1 page!!  You can do this.  Go!  Find your ancestor!

Chicken n' Noodles

Hi! This is Nathan. Here I am on my birthday eating my favorite dinner ... Chicken n' Noodles. What does that have to do with genealogy? Our great grandmother fed this meal to her family, my grandma fed it to hers, and now my parents feed it to me. Food + Family history = Fun. Check out our latest "Genealogy Cooks" video (just uploaded to our YouTube channel yesterday). What family history recipes do you love?
