Within a family you can more freely choose which individual you will research. You can skip around among family members seeking first the easiest-to-document events in the family. The easier to document events will lead to new clues for finding more-difficult-to-document events in the family.
You should be able to name the exact person and identify exactly which event in his life you want to document. Stay focused on that research objective until you find at least one source that documents it. Do not give up or change research objectives lightly.

=== '''Complete Information''' ===
'''''Complete Information''''' fully identifies any individual and links him to the correct family. It includes the vital event information noted in [[Recall_InformationRecall Information#Types of Genealogical InformationTypes_of_Genealogical_Information|Types of Genealogical Information]]. For many places and time periods you may substitute other information when some of these are not available. For example, a christening or baptism record may substitute for birth information. Burial information may substitute for a death record.
