When we interview someone or obtain a document or record with information about our family, we should make a note of it.

Write the results you obtained and where the information came from on your “Results List.”

Examples:

RESULTS LIST
People I talked to, papers I received, or objects I looked at Any new information?
My Auntie Salote
Baptismal record of my Grandfather Samuela Fakatou
Yes
Yes, his baptismal date
Where did I get the information or where is it located now?
In interview notes dated June 2000 in my file behind her family group record.

Also, keep a paper with ideas of what you want to do next.[edit | edit source]

When you have time to do work on family history, it will remind you of what you had in mind.
