I did not know your family and I do not know how much you know about your mother. I would suggest getting a copy of the death certificate as it should show her place of birth and list her parents' names, including her mother's maiden name. If you know where (the state) she was born you could send for a birth certificate which should give her parents' names. If you know any death dates and places of death for other relatives you could look up the obit. as they often give alot of info. including sometimes parents, siblings, siblings' married names, places of residence, occupations, etc. The older ones are more informative. Census records are very helpful but only the ones up to 1920 are readily available, usually at major libraries in large cities and history centers. Soon the 1930 census records will be available. Census records list head of family, wife, children, ages, occupations, place of birth and place of parents' birth. If you already know this info, forgive me. If not, I hope it will help.
