Tips & Tricks
Begin with the latest census available and work backwards. U.S. Census records have been take since 1790. Before 1790 you can use Tax Lists and other local lists that might have been compiled, according to the state you are researching in.

Search the Message Boards for others looking for the same person(s) you're researching. You go to the Board to search but you can ask to be notified of new entries.
[Internet Research]
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.
