by Genealogy Archives Specialist John P. Deeben
The key to finding your ancestors in the records of the National Archives of the United States is to ask: How did they interact with the Federal Governments during their lives? Did they enter the United States from a foreign country? Apply to become an American citizen? Enlist in a regiment during a particular war? File for a patent, homestead, or pension? Or simply answer a census taker’s questions?
Whether you’re an experienced researcher or just getting started, the Genealogy Tool Kit will help you to navigate the records of the National Archives, from census and naturalization records to military and federal land grant records. Along the way, there are stories from other researchers about their own family discoveries. With checklists to track your progress, family trees to fill in as you discover your ancestors, and room for taking notes, the Tool Kit will also serve as your own record of your family research project.
