advice for someone new to genealogy

Hi folks,

I have a co-worker who is getting interested in genealogy. She was recently given a large box full of genealogy gems. She knows the past few generations were in MD and WV. She has been doing some searches online and has found some documentation. She was very excited about what she has been able to find. She has also visted a few cemetaries and taken photos there. I'm interested to hear what advice you would give someone just starting their research. What recommendations, hints and tidbits would you share with someone new?
