Tracking a line of John Smith's when I have no clue as to where they were born

My three and four times great grandfathers are both called John Smith. My 3 times great grandfather appears in the marriage records of St Mary's Church, Kingsclere, Hampshire in 1813, when he marries Elizabeth Rogers. John is said to have been born in 1786, but does not appear as far as I can tell, in any baptismal records in the area. Both John and Elizabeth were said to be from 'out of parish'. They settled in Kingsclere and had their children there. John was a labourer, but became a…

I would like someone to guide me through the process of creating a family tree. I have all the data on my heritage. I need to print it so that I can verify all the details. After that I would like some input as to the best way to exhibit or display my family tree in a creative and yet elegant manner ( perhaps a wall setting).

Riley Familiy Early 1800s in Alabama

Hi All, 

This is my first post. I am researching the Riley family in Alabama in the early 1800's. My g-g-great grandfather Milton Riley was born in South Carolina around 1813 and died in Mississippi around 1900. Or, may also died in Buena Vista, Monroe Co. Alabama after 1900 but before 1910. However, he lived most of his life in Tuscaloosa Alabama. 

I think I have hit a brick wall when I look for his parents and siblings. I think he  father was William Riley, but there are…

A Different Approach...... Is It Needed

  

A Different Approach.... Is iIt Needed

It seems there are so many sites out there that researchers, yes even older researchers are getting a bit frustrated.

My serious concern is the loss of Rootsweb.com with their surname files and  lists for regions you can share your data with people with.  Have not heard how New York is doing with our records either. Now that is a state of major need for me on four lines.  

So reading NGS, NEHGS and…
