Do you, or older relatives have pictures, certificates, letters, etc?
Where did they live?
Did they serve in the military, police, work on the railways or in the civil service, etc?
Memories of births, marriages & deaths - these are often the times families come together
Burials - where were relatives buried?
Were relatives famous (or infamous)? So would there be other places to look for information?
Census And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David) Luke Ch. 2
