When I started researching my genealogy over 25 years ago, I had two small children, chronic debilitating migraines, and stayed at home. Most genealogical records were found at state and local courthouses or archives. Our public library had the Federal Population Census for Tennessee and Alabama. The 1920 census had just been released, so they had all the census years up to 1910 for those states. I had photocopies of Family Group Sheets done for my great aunt over the years at family reunions and I had a very expensive computer and genealogy program. My first computer cost about $3,000 and Roots III was around $350!
