We don't always have hours of uninterrupted genealogy time. But even when you have just a spare 15 minutes, you can still do some family history tasks. Here are my 5 suggestions. #genealogy #familyhistory

Do you know what your Civil War ancestor looked like? If you didn't inherit a photo, there are 4 sources you should check out that might have his physical description. #genealogy #familyhistory #civilwar

If your relatives would rather go do dishes than talk with you about #genealogy, it's time to rethink how you're talking about it. Here's my tip for not driving them away. #familyhistory
If people run away when you start talking about genealogy, it's time to rethink how you're talking about it. Less can be more.

If you're stuck researching your farming ancestors, give the industry schedules a try. #genealogy #familyhistory 
Industry schedules, also known as manufacturing schedules, can include information about farmers and are an overlooked part of the federal census.

When you find a tombstone or death record that doesn't list the birth date but does list the exact age at death, don't panic. It isn't as hard as you might think to calculate that birth date. #genealogy #familyhistory
Not all records give the birth date. Here is how to find a birth date when you know the age at death.
