Now you can search millions of records from home, providing immediate access to your family history

Start searching using a name and gradually add in any additional information in order to refine your results. You can easily narrow your results.
findmypastie can also search for name variants. In some cases original documents could contain
alternate spellings or were difficult to read when being transcribed (this happens quite often).
Using the name variants option will improve your chances for better results.
Dates and ages within records can be misleading as they might have been approximated or were
not accurately recorded. Search a Few Years before and after a date to ensure you cover all the possibilities.
Don't know the date? A record might only include an individual's age so you may have to calculate a birth date.
For example, if your grandfather served during WWI, you could estimate he was likely to be born between 1880-1900 as most soldiers were between the ages of 18-30.
Other possible estimates are: Marriage Years: 25-30 years after birth. Births of Children every 2-3 years.
