Searching the Census
Once you get your family line into America there is so much information available. Remember that there is much more to the story than just names and dates. The following blurb from ancestry.com is a great reminder of that. "Historical records contain a wealth of fascinating information and clues that can lead you to many more discoveries. Census records are incredibly helpful because they can provide a snapshot of your family at a moment in history when the census taker came to the door. These records list names, birth dates and places, occupations and more. Some census records even tell you if the family owned a radio."
