Begin with family and home sources. Your home is an important source of family history.  Look for these items and other similar sources.

  • Birth, marriage, and death certificates,
  • Family Bibles 
  • Family records
  • Journals, diaries, and letters
  • Old photographs
  • Obituaries and newspaper clippings


Next ask your relatives for any additional information they may have.  It is likely that your second cousin, great-aunt, or other relative already has some family information.

Organize the information you find, and record it on pedigree charts and family group records.
