There are SO many different types of records that are available that could contain information about your ancestor. Using the information you’ve learned about them so far (where they lived and when), start looking for other records about them. For example: church, probate (wills), court, tax, land, military, pension, directories, immigration, naturalization, obituaries, newspaper, cemetery records, area histories, or family histories.
Use the FamilySearch Wiki, the FamilySearch Catalog, or Ancestry Card Catalog, to locate what records are may be available for them. Search for your ancestor and compare what is known to what you find. Look for distinguishing information to confirm it is about your ancestor. As you search for these records you can improve the accuracy of the information about your ancestor and find clues about additional relationships. You will likely need multiple pieces of evidence to prove a certain fact, so take advantage of all that is offered and be sure to write down clues in your research log!
