*Use the information found to search for the family in census records.
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church and census records.
+
*Use the information found to search for the family in church records.
 
+
*Use the information found to search for the family in probate records.
==== Tips to Keep in Mind  ====
+
*Use the information found to search for the family in additional state and county records.
 
 
*Search for the land transactions of a couple and their children. The parents may have sold or given property to a son or daughter. Such transactions confirm relationships that might not be found in other records.  
 
*Search for records of people in the county who shared a surname. These may have been the couple’s parents, uncles, or other relatives. Your ancestor may have been an heir who sold inherited land that had belonged to parents or grandparents.
 
*To find later generations, search the land records a few years before and after a person’s death. Your ancestor may have sold or given land to his or her heirs before death, or the heirs may have sold the land after the individual died. For daughters, the names of their husbands are often provided. For sons, the given names of their wives may be included. Heirs may have sold their interest in the land to another heir even though the record may not indicate this. Continue this process for identifying each succeeding generation.  
 
*When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
 
 
 
Keep in mind:
 
 
 
*Some counties were subdivided or the boundaries may have changed. Consider searching neighboring counties as well since that courthouse may have been more convenient for the person.
 
*One deed does not usually give sufficient information about a couple and their children. A careful study of all deeds for the person or the family will yield a richer return of information.  
 
 
*For each parcel of land owned, you should obtain two documents:
