Step 1: Get a spiral notebook and write down the steps you take during your search. Keep accurate notes about: names, dates, places, phone numbers, and addresses. Keep a log of your phone calls and the dates when you register at reunion/search websites or online reunion registries. Create a folder in your email program for email correspondance, but print and make 'hard copies' of everything. (in the event of a computer crash) The organization of your search will help you to keep track of what you've done, who you've contacted and what you eventually will 'need' to do.
