And also reciting your whole family history before getting to the point of your query. The archivist does not care who your great-great whatever was. The archivist wants to know what records you would like to use. Research the finding aids first, then ask specific questions!! Try to leave out personal names. (except, of course, to request the right box alphabetically!)
