A guide to selecting records

I have amassed many more guides and charts than I can ever use, but I am always willing to try another of either type if looks helpful. In my continuing efforts to learn more about doing genealogy research properly, I was browsing the Brigham Young University site for online courses and came across their collection of guides and charts, including an excellent Record Selection Guide. It’s a bit dated (no references at all to online sources), but a very comprehensive organized list of types of records. The guide’s premise is that “your research objective is clearly defined” and offers categories of sources ranging from vital records to yearbooks. 

With a helpful glossary at the back, this is an excellent guide for anyone starting out in genealogy, but I am going to use it as I progress through Thomas MacEntee’s Genealogy Do-Over. Yes, I’m really doing it this time!
