How To Start
First - Get a blank ancestor chart (for a family tree) and an information form for each family unit (mom, dad, children)
Second - Talk to as many relatives as possible and fill in the blanks on your forms.
Third - Before running around to various towns and libraries, get on a computer and visit the sites below.
Fourth - Start with the most recent names and the U.S. Census Records keep good records and work backward.
Now, you are launched! Let the fun and mysteries begin!
