BASICS to ANCESTRY

Join us for  a class on how to begin using Ancestry.com

Remember dates and names are important.  Always write down your information.  Make a list:

Name- first, middle, maiden and last

date of birth

date of death

parent names

place of birth- might only have state, that is fine, it is a place to start

marriage certificate

death certificate-will give parents names to the deceased

the list goes on.

Probably start your search in the Census Records which has oodles of information, like siblings, children, dates, address, country of birth of parents as well.

Bring a notebook!
