  • 3. Family History Research• If you have considered doing some research on your ancestors or dipping into genealogy, here are some places which might give you a good start. 3
  • 4. Family Bible• In earlier years, many families kept records in the family Bible.• Accounts of births, deaths, and marriages were written here.• Then the Bible was passed down from generation to generation. 4
  • 5. Birth Certificates• Many parents kept these until the child was grown, and then handed it down to them.• Birth certificates can also be found in the courthouse of the place a person was born.• Before 1910, birth records might have just listed the parents names and not the childs. 5
  • 6. Death Certificates• These are also kept in the courthouse.• Death records after 1910 contain much important information, such as their familys name, place of death, cause of death, occupation, and more.• Before 1910, records were not as thorough.• They may have just listed the persons name and cause of death. 6
  • 7. Marriage Certificates• As you know, we must all file for a marriage certificate with our local courthouse before we get married.• You may find an ancestors maiden name, the grooms name, the parents of the couple, possibly the witnesses, and the date of the wedding.• Again, before 1910, there may not be as much information. 7
  • 8. Conclusion• These vital records can be extremely helpful in searching for your ancestors.• Sometimes it can be a good idea to start with yourself, a parent, or a grandparent, and start searching backwards.• And remember to check with family members who might already have copies of some of these records before you go to the courthouse. 8
