Begin with family and home sources.
- Talk to living relatives of the immigrant ancestor.
- Search for names, dates, and places on letters, post cards, photoes, certificates, family Bibles, obituaries, diaries.
- Search for records in the US where your ancestor lived: such as US census records, church records, land records, Vital records - anything that will list name, age, and possible place of birth.
- Organize the information you find, and record it on predigree charts and family gourp records.
