Learn specific research strategies that speed up your search time and focus your attention directly on the evidence you need to identify and document correctly the individuals in your family history. Make sure you have the correct family members identified for each family group: if you check and re-check the records already searched to see if they have been copied correctly, all you do is prove that you can read. This exercise does not prove your pedigree is accurate. Proof is built line upon line, document upon document. Some attendees at other retreats have said their research and their family trees were changed forever learning how to search and research differently.
