I urge researchers to verify information through multiple sources is an extremely important part of the journey through family history. Reminding family historians to keep a research log of the places they have visited–in person or through the Internet, will save you countless hours. I also stress the value of dealing openly and honestly with unpleasant discoveries while at the same time respecting the wishes of elderly family members who might want to keep closed certain doors to the past.
