I'm doing research on my Vernon, DeShazo, Reed and Chapman families. What is my first step?


Thank you

The first step in any family history search is to gather information from living relatives like gradparents Uncles, aunts and so forth. See if there are any family stories relations are willing to tell. Ask if they have any old documents such as birth/marriage/death certificates or family bibles and photos that you can make copies of. These can point you in the right direction. If such are not available (or relatives are not willing to talk) you can start by searching for your own grandparents in public records for birth/marriage/death court cases and censuses. for probable places they lived. If your family lived in the United states for a while these records are most likely easily available. Once your cross oceans and national lines it gets harder but is not impossible . Good luck
