Copy information exactly as it is in the original. Unfortunately some originals can be difficult to decipher due to old handwriting styles or faded print (refer to Deciphering documents under Videos and Tutorials). Some copied material may not be accurate so always try to check the original.
Where there is conflicting information always record both.
Always try and verify information with two pieces of original documentation.
Verify family stories with written documentation where possible.
Always label photographs and date them. Your descendants will thank you!
