Ten tricks to help your family history (for free!)

Here's some handy tips which I've gathered over the years to help me maintain my batting average of contacting two or three new cousins a month.  It's high time your research got even easier, too!

1. Hustle to get the modern day address you need for free

2. Match the marriage with the births

3. Make freebmd work for you - even when it's wrong

4. Leapfrog over that missing marriage

5. Confirm the name at birth before you do anything

6. Turn a death entry into an address

7. If it sounds right, it is Wright

8. Guess the name of the child

9. Try ALL the censuses

10. Pinpoint your Jones using local records to help
