Four things to remember when looking for family history:
1. Mind your Elders – Get as much information from the oldest
family members as you can.
2. Look for the Details – It’s the small details that
gets you the most information
3. Go there – Nothing replaces actually visiting your family
old stomping grounds
4. The Personal Touch – If you want help from others, it
helps to have some personally involved.
