Just to give you some ideas about where to start, Ask the oldest living relatives what the names of siblings, parents, aunts, and uncles. Skip the cousins (a lot easier that way). Then find out if anyone knows around about dates or places of "special" events (ie birth, death, marriage, babtism, ect). Then find out with maps the counties those places are in. Then it's just looking threw old courthouse records, library records, ect. If there are any military stuff, you may be able to get more names to search. Just remember, noone will do it all for you. If someone aready has that info then most of the time they'll give it to you, but you will still need to check the information given to you to make sure it is accurate and correct. One misspelling can mess it all up.
