Survival Kit Tips:
1- Lots of pencils and paper - Most State and National Archives, college libraries, city libraries do not allow pens. Always go onto their website and read about what is allowed in their Genealogy Room.
2- Change - You will needs lots of change for making copies, parking, refreshments, etc...
3- Family Group Sheets - These sheets should be filled out with updated information so that you can access dates easily. Do not take your whole genealogy file with you. Take only the pertinent information you will need.
4- ToDo List - Know what you are looking for. Is it a birth certificate or a newspaper article? Are you looking for a local cemetery? Always make this to do list and follow it so that you don’t get sidetracked.
