=== Getting Started with Kingdom of Saxony Research &nbsp; ===
What do you know about your ancestor? When was he born, when did he marry, when did he emigrate? Do you need records from the 20th,&nbsp;19th, 18th or 17th century? Keep in mind that the most correct research comes from looking up primary sources, records that were established by the authorities with which your ancestor had to do business. To begin your research:&nbsp;
'''Look for a mentor'''. He or she is someone who already knows a lot about your area of interest.&nbsp;
