Research Guidance. Legacy's exclusive, built-in Research Guidance, takes a look at what you already know about an ancestor, then gives you a prioritized list of research links and suggestions - all based on when and where your ancestor lived. Beginners love the guidance; experienced researchers love the checklist as a way to not overlook potential sources. Below is the list of new and updated Research Guidance sources added in this update. Click here for an overview of using Research Guidance.
