Besides the ones already mentioned, I regret not going to the Institute for
Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) at Samford University sooner. I
would have had a better and faster way to learn not only the basics but also
intermediate research and records. Attendance would have introduced me to
better genealogical methods sooner and saved me from the mistakes we all
make early on.
Interviewing my great-grandfather (b. 1883) would have been most interesting
if I had known what to ask and how to do that.
Writing down that book with my husband's ancestry in it going all the way
back would have saved years of regret. I thought I would remember the
red-covered book (or was it blue, or perhaps green?).
Good luck with the lecture.
