1. Talk with your family
Ask your parents, grandparents, aunties, and uncles.

Go back as far as you can. Be sure to write down any "vital" information.

See the research guides page.
4. Keep a notebook
Organization is key. Keep a research log of places you went, areas you searched, and names you looked for.

With this card, you can use the library edition or Ancestry.com and access censuses from 1900 to 1930.
