Names of people (ancestors, relatives, their neighbors and friends mentioned in letters and documents) can show up in all sorts of places. Google Book search is nice place to start from the comfort of your own home http://books.google.com/ When starting out with a family or new branch of the family tree, it is a good idea to just explore the local history where you know your ancestor lived. Once you click on a book found at Google Books, you are able to search for keywords in every volume, one at a time or through all the books in the database. If Google Books doesn’t satisfy, try Internet Archive. For the book best selection, check your local library and see what is available through the inter-library loan system.
