5 Genealogy Goals for the Family Archivist:

Ancestry
"Genealogists wear many hats — researcher, writer, preservationist, archivist. We always want more time to track down our elusive ancestors, but if you inherited family photos, documents, or keepsakes, there’s no time like the present to safely preserve your treasures for the next generation."

Do you have way too many genetic “4th cousins or closer” among your DNA matches?

Lisa Louise Cooke
"Math can provide us with a degree of certainty in genetic genealogy. Each of us has two biological parents. We have four biological grandparents, and eight great-grandparents.
However, the farther back we go the less we can rely on math."

13 Reasons You Can’t Find the Genealogy Information You’re Looking For:

Family History Daily
"Searching for and locating records about our ancestors is seldom a simple process. Of course, we all have those easy to find individuals that seem to appear in every single record at just the right time — but many of us spend most of our time searching for those elusive members of our tree that appear to have avoided being recorded on purpose."

Ancestry Has Thousands of “Invisible” Records You Can’t Find With a Search:

Family History Daily
"Many people are unaware of the fact that not all of Ancestry’s records show up in search. A surprising number of collections have not been indexed and are therefore virtually invisible to the everyday user of the site. These browse-only collections, as they are known, need to be purposely sought out if you want to take advantage of the records they contain."

12 Ways To Convince A Relative To Take A DNA Test:

Genealogy a la carte
"A few days ago, my cousin called her mother to ask if she would take a DNA test for me. My aunt said, “No,” and gave no reason.
Since my cousin planned to see her mother on the weekend, she suggested I provide her with reasons why her mother should be tested. She wrote to me, “Can you give me more ammunition to present the case for doing the test?”

Using Swedish Taxation Records to Solve Tough Genealogical Problems:

Legacy Family Tree Webinars
"Swedish taxation records, a head tax of individuals between the ages of 15 and 63, are some of the oldest extant records of the rural farmer. Genealogists quickly become familiar with the chronological birth/marriage/death parish records (Ministerial), the clerical surveys (Husförhör) and probate records (Bouppteckning). These documents form the bedrock of investigation into our Swedish past."
