Make use of the message boards out there. You'd be surprised how many people related to you are out there searching for a
link. They can be a great help! The cool thing is, you don't need to use your full name to post and you can make your email
address invisible so you don't need to feel that your personal information is being gathered.
Be sure to evaluate the source of your information. Remember, you can't believe everything you read! There's a lot of
people out there who guess a lot. Check their facts through census material, etc.
Remember, most everyone has two family names: your father's, but also your mother's. Don't feel you must restrict your
research to just your paternal family tree.
If you need help, let me know through posting it on the Brisbinesetc Message Board. I will help you get started!
