This page and the links that go with it have been created for those have a desire to create or extend their family history, but who are uncertain as to how to proceed. Things leading to getting "flummoxed" may include:

  1. Being a beginner.
  2. Not finding family records for a particular time and place.
  3. Lacking a method or plan to move ahead with your family's history.

Our hope here is to ask you a few questions that will both help you to move ahead and to enjoy the journey. Which of the following represents your primary interest in Family History:

  1. Curiosity about what I might find.
  2. Interest in a particular family name (surname).
  3. Find a family crest and/or heraldry.
  4. Extend one or more specific family lines.
  5. Leave a Family History legacy for my descendants.

Please just click on one of the above to start your journey. By the way, you can always return here and pick a different option.
