If you discovered an old document (such as a last will and testament) which contains the names of people which you cannot identify, here is what to do : - Search the deed books for that county and make notes of the lands which they owned and bordered. Land grants are an excellent early resource, as well as tax digests. Also, search marriage records to learn of any of these guys married daughters of your ancestor. Next, go to the census records and look for names of the children as well as birth dates and where born. Neighbors, friends and neighbors witnessed documents, such as deeds, wills, marriages and pensions from war records. The idea is to ascertain the identify of everyone associated with your ancestor. You will be surprised what you learn!
