I am young and want to know where I come from. Therefore, I am going to put together a family tree and need all the help I can get.

I am trying to research 2 sets of Berry's (my grandmothers parents).

My grandmother is Dorothy Berry (the oldest living Berry with Alzheimer's born in Nov. of 1922 in Rosa or Big Cane Louisiana).

Her mother is Margaret Berry (named Margaret after her great grandmother born around 1903).
Married alec/alex berry.
They had children together (Dorothy, Ruby, John, Willie, Florence and Sherman).

Her father is Alex/Alec Berry.
Possibly from Avoyelles Parish in Louisiana.
His mother's name may have been Laura and his fathers may have been Tom or Thomas not sure.
2 of his brothers or gene and gilbert.
One of his brothers had a daughter name ida.
Ida had a son name sam.
the children he had before marrying Margaret Berry are Jane and Peter).

I need help tracing both sides of the berry family tree can someone tell me how and where to get started?
