If you can, start by talking to your Grandparents.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

Sorry, fresh out of Grandparents.

I was thinking more along the line of something web based. Probably a service that I would have to plug in a credit card.

Be carefull....once you start, you will keep going and going and going....

Putting aside religion, here is a good place to start too.

Did you ever hear of the ("Orphan Train)? You might want to do a little research on it before you get too involved in searching. An amazing part of American history that the history books don't say anything about. Blows the hell out of ancestry facts. Alot was not passed down by grandparents because of the nature of the subject and attitudes in that time period. Alot of the people were imagrents to this country and had a great fear of being deported. Not all bad though one of the Orphans actually became a Governor of one state, I don't rember which one. My wife sort of got into this and has spoken with alot of old people in this area (SD) and info she aquired on this subject is amazing.

I had a similiar experience with my grandfather about this. He was a "paper son" who bought another identity to get into the USA from China. He immigrated through Angel Island (near Marin) which is like the Ellis Island of the west. Even after gaining citizenship and being in America for many years, he was fearful of being deported if he talked about his experiences. A lot of people enjoy ancestry hunting and many find interesting and amazing stories. Ancestry.com has some new features that look good.
