Hello Charles Musich,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We suggest that you begin by talking to your various family members, especially the more senior ones, and ask them questions so you can gather names, dates, places, and stories. With that information in hand, you may begin to gather records about these family members and the places associated with them.
We also recommend that you review NARA’s Resources for Genealogists, as well as the History Hub Blog titled Suggestions and Advice for Family History Researchers. Also, the FamilySearch Research wiki for United States Genealogy may be useful.
You may wish to search Ancestry.com or FamilySearch.org to begin your research. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. As an alternative, please check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons. Also, some of the images from Ancestry are available for free on FamilySearch.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
