Before you post a question or query to a message board, email list, etc., try and remember to include enough information so that a person can help you. This typically includes the name of the person for whom you are looking, an approximation of the date of the event, a guess as to the place of the event, sources you have tried, etc. You need not go into a paragraph discussion about everything, but just asking for help finding Grandma in the 1930 census is not sufficient.
Researchers should know:
- Grandma’s name
- Where Grandma probably lived
- When Grandma was probably born
- Who might have been living with Grandma in the 1930 census
