Don’t Force Your Descendants to Research You!
Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library
Vital Records include birth, marriage, divorce, and death records.
When you're researching the census, be sure to look at 10 families before and 10 families after the family you are researching. These folks are most likely the friends (and family) of your ancestor. They lived in communities, not alone.
Primary evidence is personal testimony or a record created shortly after an event by a person with personal knowledge of the facts.
