Do you know where your grandfather died? Obituaries are kept on file in some libraries. You could also search for his obituary on the internet, or local papers. Obituaries are a great source for information like birth and relatives also many tell a little about the person's life this could lead you to places where he lived which you could then look up consensus records. Hope this helps

I would like to add some more suggestons. Do you know where your Grandfather died? If so, check with the cemetery to see where he is buried. Sometimes families are buried close to one another, so your Great Grandparents may be close by. Once you find your Grandfather's death date, and find his birthdate, than you could put another posting here. Just remember to give dates when a person is deceased, and not to put your email address here. One can contact you privately if they wish.


Best wishes in your research, and I hope you find some interesting information in your research.
