Start with your name. Sometimes your name will open up loads of leads - you just have to sift thru them. Your parent's names. Their marriage cerificate will usually have at least one of their parents names on it. Your local library is always a good place to start. Old newspapers (obits), local history books, etc. Courthouse records are good too. Land deeds, will probates, estates, taxes, land grants etc. lots of this information is at your local courthouse. If you still hit a brick wall email me at email@example.com and give me what information you do have and I will give it a shot. Barbara
how do you do research when you have very little information?
Very little information is the name of the game, at least you have some, put in what info you have and try and match things up, don't try and be to spacific to start, close matchs somes times help more, try differant combinations, and differant spellings, sometimes that helps also. Good luck..

I am looking for a good genealogist that works in the Brazoria County area of Texas. Must have the ability and background in researching African Americans in and around that area. Please email me if you and someone you know has this an interest or desire. I have collected a great deal of information already so this would not be a new start up project, just one that needs to do more digging to connect the dots.
