If you or your family have been collecting documentation for quite sometime, you should consider replacing your copies that are over 20 years old.  As each copy loses clarity, it is suggested preservation photocopying should be considered to reduce the times the copy will need re-copied.  For more information visit the Library of Congress online.

If you are stumped – another lost ancestor – renew your efforts to find further documentation on the family members you have verified.  One never knows when a notation in records for children, brothers, etc. will give your the lead you need to locate that lost link.
