Many thanks for the download of your excellent template. I shall be using it in the near future, since I have only just began to order all my known ancestors onto index cards. My problem is that I and anyone born before me have been born abroad and not to British Citizens.
Some of the sources have been destroyed, therefore cannot be accessed. Also, to complicate the story even further, the various ancestors come from roughly four different areas in Germany, one of which is since 1946 under Polish administration. I am in touch with a German heritage association who are researching sources in the Polish administrated area. These people advise me to subscribe to the Mormon database.
What do you think? Many thanks for your email, and yes I would be interested in the challenges other family research beginners come across. In the meantime best wishes from Erika D.
