Information needed to start you family tree research


To start your family tree research, you will need the following information:

  1. Names of your ancestors Start with your parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents and even better great-great-grandparents. Make sure to record their full names, including their middle names, if possible. Remember maiden names for woman...

  2. Dates of birth, marriage, and death Dates of birth, marriage, and death for each ancestor you are researching.

  3. Places of birth, marriage, and death Places where your ancestors were born, married, and died. This information will help us locate vital records and other documents related to your ancestors, if you dont have the exact city, then just give the country.

  4. Family stories and traditions Talk to your family members about any stories or traditions related to your ancestors. These can provide valuable clues to help understand your family´s history. If you dont have any, then no problem.

  5. Photographs and documents Any photograph or document related to your ancestors, such as birth certificates, marriage licenses, and obituaries.
