FamilyTree.org has published a series of articles from several contributors with technical tips for genealogists and family historians. I’ve included 30 to give you an appreciation of what’s included with a link to many more.

I have read some, but not all, of the articles and when you delve in you’ll understand—it’s extensive.  It’s a phenomenal line-up of informative tips written in plain language.

You can start with the entries that catch your eye and keep the rest in mind for a return visit.  It’s also useful to read the comments left by other readers:
