Remembering Names and Dates

When speaking to others about your ancestors, you should be able to roll names and dates off your tongue and know which generation they belonged to.  If you are working hard on finding these guys, the details are easily accessible inside of your thoughts. It is like being a detective, except you are searching for people who are no longer with us.  The genealogist does not leave a stone unturned and is always thinking "where was he in 1800 (or whatever)?" This sort of thinking puts the plan of research foremost in the mind and leads us to more clues. I usually begin by completing family group sheets and working on those names. After awhile, I know who could not possibly belong to that family other than the ones listed because they are some sort of cousin  or the other and belong to another family group sheet.  There are always family members who cannot be accounted for, so rationalization has to be employed as well as the written family group sheet which houses the facts. No matter where I find information, I go behind the researcher and look at the proving source.  The best sources are bible records, wills, estates and deeds.
