One of the most satisfying aspects of Family History work is finding new family members through research efforts. Researching has become significantly easier with the help of multiple search services, "Record Hints", and such. So many different types of records are on-line now, such as Census Records, Military Draft Records, City Directories, Probates & Wills, birth, marriage, and death certificates, obituaries, and more.
Doing research is like putting a puzzle together. Try it with other family members. Feel free to explore the tips below. New information is added often, so please check back periodically.
