Payne Odom Genealogy Library Family Tree
Getting started with your Family
To get started in genealogy is actually
charts and family group sheets. Make lots of copies. (These charts are
available at any LDS Family History Center, good book store, good
stationery store...or from Odom Library and copies shown below.)
letters to all of your aunts, uncles, cousins...all of your family
telling them you're going to do family history. Send them several
pedigree charts and family group sheets. Ask them to fill out and
return to you. (Start Aunt Sally's chart and make Aunt Sally 16 years
older than she really is...she will hurt herself getting information
back to you.)
"master set" of pedigree charts and family group sheets containing all
information from your family...and you're ready to go to the library.
Here are the charts for you to see here...
