Research Checklist

Yesterday I found a Research Checklist that I could work with. It's from the Midwest Genealogy Center and you can find it here: Research Checklist

I received my dad's birth certificate from the state of Michigan yesterday. Since he is deceased I had to send them the death certificate before they would release the birth certificate to me. Someone from their vital record office called me and told me he would hold on to my application for the bc,  I could fax it or email it to him when I received it from the state of Texas.

Today I uploaded the death certificate to and to our family fb genealogy page. I also uploaded some other documents to his record as well.

I'm ordering birth certificates from Kentucky and Michigan tonight. Kentucky docs are $10 while Michigan docs are $34. Go figure.

Today's Geneaology

Welcome if you're reading this! This is purely my attempt at keeping track of where I've been and what I've found in my daily research. Maybe you'll find something that helps you or interests you and maybe not.

I've been interested in genealogy since I was a teen. After I became a mom I would pester my grandmother with questions which she hated answering so I didn't get much info from her. My parents were divorced when I was in elementary school, and didn't know much about my dad's side of the family so that was where I started researching when I joined a few years back.

I have now found siblings, distant cousins, and even an uncle. All of these people add to who I am.

For today I'm trying to find a research checklist that will help me keep track of the records I have so I'm not doubling my efforts.
