If you or your relatives are Bahamian, British or born in a Commonwealth country don't forget the pretty good records kept by the British government. The people who oversee those records in the UK are pretty helpful, for the most part. They answer mail enquiries and have started to put much of the UK's historic birth records online. Here's some info about it:
If any of your family were famous -- or infamous -- don't forget newspapers and magazines.

MaddieI have had great success using a computer program called "My Family Tree Maker" and it is not too expensive.
It will give you links to genealogical societys that might be able to help you.
Good Luck!

smittyNot easy.I tried.Start with your older relatives and go back from their.You probably have some information already.Make a chart and trace as much as you know yourself.As you go back in time, inlist the help of other members of your family.You'll quickly get to a point where the information dries up. There is probably an orginization somewhere that might be able to help, but I doubt it's free.Good luck.
