First list your family on the Jackson County web site that lived or came
through Jackson county area that you are researching. Put out as much
information you have on them like when they were born, died, marriages etc.
Usually someone on the list will offer help and who knows you may find
someone else researching the same name.

I am so new at this and don't know where to begin. I decided one day I'd
like to research my complete family as the members close to me started
passing on. I set my mom down and picked her brain and don't know where to
go from there or even begin to know what to do. I went to the Land web site
but didn't understand anything I saw or know what to ask for. Is there
someplace I can go to get better prepared for the adventure I'm thinking I
want to go on?
