Welcome to Budding Genealogists: The Ancestral Guide for All Age Groups...

So you are thinking about learning who your ancestors are or where they come from but the very thought seems just another impossible task?

Often events happen in one's live to begin the thoughts of doing family history or genealogical research. 

Perhaps it is just a simple curiosity of wondering about ones family's ancestry or an assignment from a child at their school has prompted an interest. 

Regardless of the reason, you have come to the right place for guidance with your genealogical/family history journey into discovering your ancestors. 

Budding Genealogists will provide step by step guidance to help you regardless where you are in this new ancestral adventure. Whether you are just taking the first steps in your research, already started to do some research, would consider yourself to know a little bit or you are even a hobbyist, this blog hopes to provide practical guidance in all things genealogical.

One of the first things to consider is where you are today, your family, your children and all you are involved in are the very beginnings of your own genealogical journey. Whether you are writing in a baby book, creating a picture book for a child, keeping mementos for your family members and recording in some way those important milestones in life, each of these are steps towards putting together your current generation. Something that can easily overlooked but is very important. 

Some beginning steps to get things going would be to take time to organize those important documents for each person in your family and decide if you will be recording this information in paper format, in a software management program or in an online database program. All of these ways are good, the decision is yours. We will review each these recording methods in the next few blogs so that by the time the review is complete, you'll be able to make the best decision for you at this time.

Choose some time, once a week or once a month to begin to collect these things in one central place, this will make organizing easier. These simple steps will result in a successful ancestral journey.

Comments are always encouraged and welcome!
