Turns out one of the best places to go is familysearch.org. It is a free site run by the Morman Church. If you didn’t know the Morman’s are very big on genealogy.
It helps when searching to know a little bit about who you are looking for. You put in their first and last name, and if you know anything else you can narrow the search down.
Ancestry.com has a wealth of information, but 99% of it you have to be a member to access.
You can always try google as well. In this day and age you would be suprised at what you find.
