Why Should Research Logs ALWAYS Be Used?

The answer to this question can be found in the online video presentation Research Logs by David Dilts, AG. This is one of a series of video presentation available free on the Research Classes Online page at FamilySearch.org

In this 21 minute presentation David Dilts, AG discusses why you should use a research log on a consistent basis, what information should be included in your log, and how to properly fill out a research log. A few of the important points David makes in his presentation are:
  • Research logs help in EVERY step of the research process
  • Research logs show negative evidence
  • Research logs save time
  • Research logs serve as a foundation on which future research can be built

There is a handout from the Family History Library on Research Logs that accompanies this presentation. If you enjoy this presentation then continue on to watch Research Logs, Part 2.

There is a whole series of free classes and video presentations available on the Research Classes Online page at FamilySearch.org.
