Research Checklist from http://www.jelleyjar.com/ancestor/research.html
Unfortunately, this link no longer works.
As you may remember from previous posts, I like lists! So when I came across this research checklist I had to make a copy of it. This checklist has helped me organize my research and I thought I would share it.
The checklist has spaces for the following:
- Birth Record
- Death Records
- Probate Record
- Military Record
- Marriage and Children
- US Census Record
- State and County Census Record
- Mortality Schedule
- Land Records
- Miscellaneous Records
Even though my genealogy program, Roots Magic, has ample space for the same type of facts; I like this paper copy because I can see at a glance what records I don't have information for. It helps trigger my memory to look for certain records and helps me plan my next steps for research.
If you like lists like I do, check this one out. Thank you jelleyjar.com (Jelley Jar Country Home) for sharing it.
