Where do I start? is perhaps one of the most frequently asked questions from people interested in learning more about their family history. The author, Shauna Hicks decided to write this research guide to present together in one place methodology and resources that she mentioned in her presentations to societies and libraries.

Using various internet resources you can usually build a family pedigree quickly, going back several generations. Then you confirm what you discovered and spend more time filling in the details and getting to know your ancestors lives and the communities in which they lived.

It is definitely not all online and this guide highlights some of the archives and libraries that you will become familiar with as you research your family history.

As a beginner's guide it has been hard to keep it simple as there are just so many resources that can be used for genealogy and family history. While Shauna has tried not to overwhelm those just starting out, she has also tried to make people aware that there are many ways to research and record your family history.

It is a learning process and you will acquire new skills and knowledge as you progress. This book is the first step to discovering your family history.
