Every genealogist faces the same dilemma: So many records, so little time. When pursuing a research objective (i.e. What was the maiden name of Fredonia Victoria Gooch?) many genealogists are seized with panic, not knowing where to start first. Nobody wants to waste precious research time chasing after records that will not yield the information they seek.
Genealogists just want to know their options. Which records are most likely to improve their chances for success?
On Granny’s Trail is providing a Genealogy Record Selection Table to give you a head start:
Record groups marked above are good places to start in searching for specific types of genealogical data, but the others can be full of surprises. Start with the suggestions in the table and then expand your search to other record groups. Biographies and genealogies can include any or all of the data listed, and were not included in the table.
