I D.R. "Doc" Young - Value Your Time and Research Endeavors. Please contact me GenDoc to discuss research that you are missing, yet to find and may not have found.
The following is a guideline of basic information I require/need to facilitate a accurate and timely search you should decide that I locate specific records as outlined below.
How many hours, days, weeks, months, years have been spent searching for an Ancestor, sometimes with very little known information & facts.
Not having any idea as to how your Ancestor might have been indexed with accuracy in Records, of Any Year i.e. Surname/Maiden name spelled correctly, year born, county/state born or where living county/state year of inquiry. Record Types, applicable to an inquiry: Birth, Marriage, Death/Burial, Census, City Directories, Military, Immigration/Naturalization, Passport Applications, Last Will & Testament, Land, Probate, etc.
If Married, Spouse Name and any Children that may be living with Ancestor inquiry of a Recorded Date (Month/Year) of Federal Census or a State Census (if available).
"Family History & Stories add meaning to our Ancestors, may only give us places and time of life events for searching, it is the facts found from records providing us the proof, showing what is true or correct, then our acceptance if we choose of these facts, adding to their History and Our Tree."
Note: All Record Look-ups require Basic Information, applicable to your Inquiry
1) Full Name if known: Given, Middle Name or Initial, Last Name
2) When Born, i.e. approximate Year or if known Month/Year
3) Where Born, i.e. County and State
Providing as thorough information facilitates a potential successful search. Records dating back to 1607 Settling of Jamestown, 13 years before the Pilgrims landed, records may not have been kept, and of records kept since, not every Town/County/State may have records available online.
