Search Tips (from FamilySearch)

  1. What do you already know? Talk to other family members. Use a form and start filling in the information. Several types of forms are available here.

  2. What else do you want to know? It can be helpful to pick one person to research.

  3. Where to look? Decide where your answers are likely to be found. Try published family histories, censuses, local histories, and vital records.

  4. Contact a library, government office, or internet site that may give you this information. Make notes of who you contacted, when, and what information you found.

  5. Add the new information to your pedigree chart, family group record and personal and family history notes.
