To uncover these events you will need to check several resources. A little bit of luck is involved with family history research but a lot of it is working methodically through the resources.
Not sure how to begin? Check out our tips for beginning your family history research.
- Note down the resources you’ve checked even when you don’t find anything.
- Check the original record as it might have additional information that's not listed in the index.
- More information was documented in later years than earlier years.
We've added an icon next to each resource so you know where you can use them. You will need to sign up for a Library card to use many of our resources.
