There are several places to begin. One is to lloik up your family name on the various geneology indexes on the web. The Mormons have an excellent site.

Another way to begin is to go your local library and find all the occurrences of your family name in the local directores. Armed with these names and dates, you can then tesearch the local newspapers.

Good luck
