FACTS
Female lines are as important as male lines. One-half of your ancestors are female! They can be more difficult to locate since most changed their names when married.
The Research Log is very important for the time when you share you data or decide to publish your work. You will need to know your sources for obtaining each piece of information. Be VERY specific with your information quoting authors, titles, pages, publishers, etc
