you are not the useless idiot you appear to be

I just came across this nicely written introduction to family history research from Northumberland & Durham Family History Society.  https://www.ndfhs.org.uk/beginners/

It's not too long, not too short, and includes the wonderful line "at least you will be able to confirm that you are not the useless idiot you appear to be" (about taking notes of sources)!
