How Do I Start

1. Write down what you know. Family Tree Chart  

Start with yourself. Use the Family Tree Chart above to enter information about you, your parents, grandparents, et.  If you do not know exact dates and places, estimate them.  Circle any missing or incomplete information, and decide what you want to find first.  

For each couple in the Family Tree Chart, fill out a Family Group Chart   that will show each of the children in that family 

2. Contact your family and friends.
Record any useful information and stories they provide. Ask about copies of birth, marriage, and death certificates as well as journals, letters, photos, and other records that might be available.  Find out if they know other people you should contact.

3. Search other sources.

  • Gather your records starting with the records you already have, and organize them in one place.
  • Explore online sources starting with FamilySearch.org free access to family history records, guides, and resources. You will also find links to other helpful Web sites.
  • Get personal help by visiting our local FamilySearch family history center for free personal help and many other valuable services. Center staff may also direct you to other local community resources.
