Step 8: Join with others, learn more, & share

Read about doing family research. Join a family history society and attend its meetings.

Take a class about doing family history. Many public libraries, community education programs, and genealogy organizations offer such classes. 

Today, many classes can be taken online or as webinars.

There are many books, magazines and articles about record keeping, research techniques, sources and tools. Have fun with this pursuit.

Sharing ideas with others can uncover new leads and new family members.
