Getting Started

#1
I am just starting out in Ancestry and have looked at a few courses and some books on where to start.

However they all seem to suggest that you start by visiting relatives etc. and getting down as much family info. as possible.

My problem is that I don't have any living relatives, and both parents are long ago dead.

Is it still possible to make any progress if I just know my parents names, and that's all?

Any advice would be welcome as I would love to dig a bit deeper, but seem to have come up against a brick wall.

Thank you, John
