Upon completing day 1 you will have started on some very important basics of being a pretty good genealogist.
You will have been assigned to start gathering information and building a pedigree chart.
Your signing up for FamilySearch and Family Tree opens the door for some cool experiences tomorrow.
It doesn't matter that each of you has a different experience level, a different knowledge base, and a different learning ability.
You might be a whiz and accomplish day one in a short time, or it might take a while. I do suggest you follow these steps. Leave a comment if you want a particular problem you are having addressed, I will be glad to respond.
