Hi Chris, Sounds like you're new to genealogy. The best thing when getting started is to do just that, start with yourself. What do you know about your own family. Where were your parents born and when. Find out the state, county etc. Than work back to your grandparents etc. If the Ribble name is all your interested in tracing right now than you only need to know who your grandfather Ribble was. Ask your father about him. Try and find out when and where he was born and all you can about his life. If he is still living than go directly to him and interview him. Learn as much as you can from living relatives and go back as many generations as you can using there memories as aides. When they don't have any more to tell than share what you have with the rest of us on this page and we can likely help you out from there. Tell us a little about you. Where and when were you born? I can tell you if you read the messages that have been poted to this page you will get some idea about the four main Ribble families that immigrated to this country in the 18th century. You are most likely a descendant of one of these four. Who knows, maybe we are related.
