These are the stories of what I have found as I went along in dealing with family information and what has worked for me in my quest for information. I am sharing this information so that others interested in the quest for family information will be able to learn from my mistakes. There are also stories here that don’t necessarily fit into my genealogical search, but apply because they deal with the history of the United States.
These documents are not a guarantee that you will find a family member or that any of my techniques will work for you, but it is a start. This is not a bible on genealogy, but more of a guideline. I am also open to suggestions for other articles that should appear here.
