This series of wiki articles can be accessed by '''progressing clockwise''' around the hub diagram starting with '''"Genealogy Basics"'''.  If you are new to genealogy this page will take you to various articles that will help you to become proficient in your new interest.
+
This next level ( '''''climbing “your” family tree''''' ) highlights a number of areas you should review when starting off for the first time and which should be reviewed periodically to keep you on track.  You can check out some or all of the articles or come back to them later as needed.  After this your next step could be to go to the '''[[User:Luccagenes/Sandbox/TestPage3|“New to the Wiki”]]''' section for information on how to best utilize this wiki to help you build a strong foundation for your future research.
  
[[Image:Html7.jpg|left|100px|Genealogy basics]]
+
By its very nature, your genealogical research is a never ending quest as there is a constant influx of new online information and every new contact you make could add to your knowledge and your family history recordsMany people have a tendency to expand their research beyond their direct family line due to their enjoyment of the research process itself and their interest in pursuing the world family tree.  You have to decide when and what you want to get out of this endeavor and how much time you are willing and able to put into it.
''Don’t be put off if it seems that the information here is too basic for you as this page was developed for the novice  (whether that be a young child or a senior getting up to speed with genealogy)Scan what you already know but you may still find things of interest within these pages.  You may also find it useful when teaching others while sharing your interests.''
 
  
If you are new to the wiki as well, there is a link in the center of the hub called [[Help:Navigation_Basics|"Navigation Basics"]] which will help to raise your comfort level as you move around the various parts of the wikiThe sidebar at the bottom of this page also contains several links you will find to be a useful reference now and once you gain experience.  Good luck on your new venture and remember that there is always a way to contact someone if you ever encounter any problems or if you would just like some advice.
+
Ultimately, the most important point to remember is that you should always pace yourself during this ventureThere will be times when new information comes fast and furious due to a breakthrough of a brick wall, as well as times where nothing is found for weeks or monthsYour enthusiasm will also waver up and down in relationship to more important issues in your life but just remember that once you have completed the two '''[[Beginners_First_Step|time sensitive critical steps]]''' the other genealogy data will always be there waiting for you. Pace yourself so that you do not burn out and loose interest and if you document your research with irrefutable sources then others like your children or your children’s children can pick up where your legacy left off.
 
+
<br><br>
This hub page is designed to provide a Guided Tour for those that may be New to Genealogy and for quick access for those wanting a refresher course on specific topicsThe current format is summarized in the article [[Beginners First Step|Beginners First Step]] which could be used as a less formal overview for those new to genealogy.   The objective at this page is to provide a structured format which will lead to articles offering greater detail as the beginner becomes acquainted with the genealogical terminology, the searching options, and proven research methods.

Climbing "your" family tree


A Guided Tour

This journey can become a hobby, passion, vocation, career, or a legacy.



This next level ( climbing “your” family tree ) highlights a number of areas you should review when starting off for the first time and which should be reviewed periodically to keep you on track. You can check out some or all of the articles or come back to them later as needed. After this your next step could be to go to the “New to the Wiki” section for information on how to best utilize this wiki to help you build a strong foundation for your future research.

By its very nature, your genealogical research is a never ending quest as there is a constant influx of new online information and every new contact you make could add to your knowledge and your family history records. Many people have a tendency to expand their research beyond their direct family line due to their enjoyment of the research process itself and their interest in pursuing the world family tree. You have to decide when and what you want to get out of this endeavor and how much time you are willing and able to put into it.

Ultimately, the most important point to remember is that you should always pace yourself during this venture. There will be times when new information comes fast and furious due to a breakthrough of a brick wall, as well as times where nothing is found for weeks or months. Your enthusiasm will also waver up and down in relationship to more important issues in your life but just remember that once you have completed the two time sensitive critical steps the other genealogy data will always be there waiting for you. Pace yourself so that you do not burn out and loose interest and if you document your research with irrefutable sources then others like your children or your children’s children can pick up where your legacy left off.
