Surely, you should check,, and go to the homesites for the counties you need. Ancestry is fine, as far as it goes, but remember that you will find likely less than 5% of the total sources available for your searches. has far more info,

Plain old county searches will serve you best in the long run of it all. Example: Google,{Madison County OH cemeteries free}. Then try any one of your counties.

There are literally millions of records that no pay-for site will supply now or at any time in the near future. .

I find libraries to be a great source of information. I found books on family relatives in GoogleBooks. Some of them couldn't be downloaded, but I took the information to my small local library and they did interlibrary loan requests for me. I was advised initially that most of them may not come in, but my librarian was actually able to get 3/4 of them. Totally awesome. I also visited my father's family home location in MS and their small library actually had a large area set aside for genealogical research. I found a lot of supporting documentation including records left by family members and was able to complete my DAR application. My university library has a lot of active subscriptions and various documentation for family resources. Love the library, support your library!!!!! :)
