Here are a few tips to help you get started with genealogy.

  1. Start with what you know. If everyone posts what they know onto Geni the records will be vast and accurate.
  1. Mostly everyone knows basic information about themselves. This is the information that should be entered first. The basic information is often the most important when searching for information about a person. The basic information needed to narrow down a search when searching for a person is as follows:
    • Birth date
    • Place of birth
    • Parents’ names
    • Where they’ve lived
