Research Check List

Nancy over at My Ancestors & Me posted what looked like a very helpful checklist. She said she would like to make a few additions to the form. I printed it off from her blog and thought this would come in handy. So on Thursday at work while being on a boring conference call I made the form again. Adding a couple of things updating it a little. I added 1940 census since it will be out in 2 years.
If I added it now I won't have to add it again in 2 years.

Also I added lines to list addresses that our ancestors lived at. I also added lines to put down how old an ancestor is at the time of the census. I always seem to be looking for paper and a calculator, this why I will have it all in one place and I don't have to keep double checking. I also left space to place a return address label just in case it fell out of your research binder some kind soul could send it back to you.

I email the form to Nancy and she like my additions and asked me to blog about it. So here it is. If you double click on it you should have it at full size and should be able to print it off. If you are unable to print it email me and I'll send it to you. My email is on my profile.

Don't you just love the name of Nancy's blog!
