You may want to go to your library and use their free access to the Databases.Some are termed, "Gale Databases."
One Database is; Ancestry.com
It will have most of the information you need.Also, your regional library will have Census records from all European connected countries and the USA 50 states where you roll the microfilm and read the last name and year of the person in the state you are researching.
Another free place is the Latter Day Saints Churches that has their CD collections. ======================================= Regards, Sir Computer Teacher in New Orleans, Louisiana http://computerteachers.ushttp://computerteachers.us LsuEdu@BellSouth.net ~ Read to Learn - Write to Think ~ =======================================
