Michael, what I did was go to one of the profiles farthest back that I could see, opened another window and went to familysearch.org and entered the information for name, birth location, and birth date but I went a couple of years back and forward to allow for estimated dates in the census and this is one of the records I found,

"United States Census, 1940," index and images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K74T-L1H : accessed 6 June 2015), Dolores Pisoni in household of Louis Pisoni, Ward 12, St. Louis, St. Louis City, St. Louis City, Missouri, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) 96-277, sheet 10A, family 214, NARA digital publication T627 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 2012), roll 2192.

Louis Pisoni Head M 30 Missouri
Esther Pisoni Wife F 27 Missouri
Dolores Pisoni Daughter F 8 Missouri
Oscar Mueller Father-in-law M 64 Missouri
Rose Mueller Mother-in-law F 61


I hope this helps get you started with your search

Use the free search tool at https://familysearch.org/search and plug in as much as you know as to names/date ranges/locations/ etc. Examples below: From census data – try those names/dates etc to look for futher records such as marriage or death certs which may provide more information as to parents etc.
