We all remember our first forays into the world of family research.
"Where do I look?", "How do I physically record the information?" and "What on earth is a GEDCOM file?" are just a few of the many questions that went through my mind when starting out.
Now, if somebody who had "been there and done that" could have provided some advice about the importance of citing sources or, indeed, the art of deciphering census handwriting, my research would have been significantly more efficient!
Over the next three days, we're going to be asking our learned community to share advice for budding or even experienced genealogists.
Simply post your advice on our Facebook Page, Tweet it to us @MyHeritage using the hashtag #MyHGenealogyAdvice or comment on this blog post below. Your advice should be no more than two sentences and should be as concise as possible.
Two winners will be picked at random and will each receive a one-year PremiumPlus MyHeritage and WorldVitalRecords subscription.
