Dear Ms. Brown,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
For an overview on how to begin your research, we suggest that you review the NARA’s Resources for Genealogists as well as the FamilySearch Research wiki for United States Genealogy In addition, the document Suggestions and Advice for Family History Researchers may be useful.
We also 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 Ada Miller Bryant and the places associated with them.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
