The Genealogy Research Process: The WANDER METHOD (ASL)

Summary

In this podcast, Amy Johnson Crow, a Rootstech Connect presenter, suggests that adding more and more genealogy records without having a plan leads down rabbit holes, wastes time, and causes frustration.

She explains that genealogy research isn’t just a straight line; it might look more like a spiral or meandering path. By introducing an acronym for the word Wander, Crow teaches an effective method for organizing the genealogy research process.

WANDER

  • What are you trying to find?
  • Analyze what you already have
  • Note what you are missing
  • Discover new records
  • Evaluate everything
  • Repeat as necessary
