The census, and birth, marriage & death records, are terrific tools—basic for building an American family tree. They give us a snapshot of our family. Couple this information with old family letters, perhaps a journal and other records, and we begin to discover the basic facts about each person. Add newspapers and we go beyond the basic facts: we learn the stories of their lives.
When looking for online information about your ancestors, it is helpful to search by date—either an exact date for a narrow search, or a date range for a broader search. GenealogyBank's search page makes it easy to search either way.
