Welcome to Seeing The Wood For The Trees – the How-To genealogy blog. My name is Phil Isherwood and this is my blog site. Like many family historians, I’m interested in all things genealogy, but I have a particular interest in best practices and in promoting the recommended approaches to family history research.
In my day job I work with businesses to define strong, repeatable processes aligned with industry best practices. In a similar vein, I think that we can improve our genealogical research by learning from the best in the genealogy community and using the best advice available. And that’s what I hope to bring in this blog.
My blog articles run the gamut of family history research problems and proposed solutions. I hope there is something for everyone, from novices through to experienced researchers.
