Documenting the Lineage for Eligibility in DAR or SAR The FamilySearch.org collection includes hundreds of free databases for the United States containing vital records, census records, probate records, military records, and court records. Many of these databases are linked in this tutorial under Vital Records and Probate Records. It is usually best to search specific databases based on where and when your ancestors lived. However, if you are unable to find a record by searching specific databases, try searching all of the FamilySearch databases containing historical records at once. Usually, the best way to find a record is to search using a first name, a last name, and a place of residence (county and state OR just a state). If you cannot locate a record by searching on a name and place of residence, the next strategy is to remove the place of residence and search using a first name, a last name, father’s first name, and mother’s first name. Next, try searching on a first name, a last name, wife’s first name, and wife’s maiden name.

RootsWeb.com Data mining Data mining is the process of discovering patterns in large data sets involving methods at the intersection of machine learning, statistics, and database systems.[1] Data mining is an interdisciplinary subfield of computer science with an overall goal to extract information (with intelligent methods) from a data set and transform the information into a comprehensible structure for further use.[1][2][3][4] Data mining is the analysis step of the "knowledge discovery in databases" process, or KDD.[5] Aside from the raw analysis step, it also involves database and data management aspects, data pre-processing, model and inference considerations, interestingness metrics, complexity considerations, post-processing of discovered structures, visualization, and online updating.[1] Etymology[edit] In the 1960s, statisticians and economists used terms like data fishing or data dredging to refer to what they considered the bad practice of analyzing data without an a-priori hypothesis.
