There are many different ways to learn and research your family and develop good genealogical skills. Recently, I have been viewing videos on Youtube. When I did a word search for Genealogy on February 27, 2010, I was given 4,730 hits; search for Family History gave me 4, 280 hits; and Ancestry gave me 3,430 hits.
