Tips & Tricks
Check for cemetery records with the church, Sexton and Funeral Directors. Visit the cemetery and take a picture of the tombstone. Check the obituaries in that time frame.
[Church Records]
Don't assume that all children listed in the census belong to the wife listed. This may be a second wife and the children a combination of "his and hers."
Marriage Records may only be records of the wedding. However, you may also find the Application for Marriage completed by the bride and groom-to-be. Marriage records may also be corroborated with church records. Check everything for correctness.
