In Response To: Person, Joe and Mattie ()

You have a lot of work ahead of you.

First and most important, interview every relative who might be able to provide any facts, no matter how insignificant they seem now. Put these interviews on tape if you can (cause you never know what will be important later) or take very good notes.

Two good places to start:

- Get birth certificates of known children. Their parents' names will be on them.

- Look on the 1920 census for the families who were living in 1920. The entire family will be listed.
