1. Find a record option

The fastest way to find your ancestor in a genalogy record is to use the following websites. When you inport or type in your ancestors into their tree, the websites automatically access all of their databases and bring back "hints" that you can review to see if it is your ancestor. You can also attach the record you find to your website tree. Note that not all records are online.
