Class 1 using the book Research Like a Pro as a guide will show you how creating a research objective will help you stay focused and on track in your research, saving you time as you search. By defining a precise question either to identify an individual, prove a family relationship or to discover an event your ancestor participated in, you can hone in on specifics rather than searching at random. The next step in focusing your research is to conduct a research review of what you already have so that you don’t repeat research, but also to analyze what you have to glean all of the information from each source before you move on to other sources. Putting your research along with your research objective into a timeline will help you identify holes in your research, but also to see where conflicts may exist that need to be resolved.
