When I teach my classes, I start with the following list of what I call my “10 Key Genealogy Principles.

These are the most useful techniques and strategies I have learned in my years of research. They are what continue to help me to solve my biggest genealogical puzzles.

One or more of these principles are taught at every genealogy conference and in every genealogical article. Sometimes they are called different things, but these are the skills you want to focus on growing.

I share them here with you in no particular order.
