    Thank you, my question is you finally get to go and do research on location. While there you find out they have a finding aid that contains cards with family units on them, pointing to the original records for the vital records. You look at these cards and find you can go back not just one generation but 3 or 4 generations. So you gather all the records you can find. How do you organize these records when you get home. Or you go and look at land records for the early 1800’s and expect to find 1 or 2 deeds and you find a dozen or more and when you get home you find out your ancestor was like a real estate agent.
