Talk to family members: parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins. Family members are an excellent source of information. When speaking with family be sure to write/transcribe all the information (see family group sheets) and, if they are willing, record the discussion. Also, check with family members as someone may already be working on the family tree and this can save valuable research time. Staff in the Local History and Genealogy Department is very knowledgeable and can assist with genealogy and historical research. The Department has a large collection of print, microfilm, and online genealogical and historical resources available. For a full list of getting started tips view our Getting Started Guide.
