Take A List

If you are going to do any research in records where the use of terms is important, land records, foreign language church records, etc. take a "cheat sheet" of key terms or words and what they usually mean. It will help.

For example a sheet for land records should include grantor, grantee, quit claim, etc.
A sheet for foreign language work should contain the main genealogy words in that language at the very least.
