⇒Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page

These pieces of information may give you new biographical details such as a title, an occupation, or land ownership. Add this new information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors. For example:

  • Use the names of the parents' father and mother to find additional generations of the family.
