 and in other published works at these important locations. Many genealogical records related to
 your ancestry search, important records like family
 wills, court  records, obituaries, death certificates, military records and land deeds are not available online and can only be obtained by mailing research requests to places like local public libraries or cemeteries, or by visiting the LDS Family History Library in Utah. These records are critical to any comprehensive ancestry search and should not be overlooked if high quality and thorough research results are to be
 achieved during your project. For these and other reasons, it's sometimes a great idea to hire a professional genealogist
 to assist you with your genealogy search.
