Ask any experienced genealogist what they wish they knew when they first got started, most of them will tell you they wish they had documented their research. You may be brand new to Ancestry and have just started building your family tree. Those shaky leaves may have taken you on a journey through time, up branches and down rabbit holes. But, you are going to get stuck. Or confused. Or try to reach out for help. And the first question you will be asked is, "What documentation do you have for that?"
