How do I go about finding my family history?
How can I find anything on my family if everything cost and some records might have the person under the wrong gender.

Build your family tree on line.
You can use a paid site like:

Genealogy message board:
The time may come when you want more information than you can find for free. When this happens you can back up your “tribalpage” tree to your computer on a “GEDCOM” file
you can then go to (I think it is the best subscription site)
Upload your “GEDCOM” file
and start to work!
You might need to make a few adjustments to your tree to make it look better.
