Have you checked this list of resources?

Also, check all the collections here:

Some of them aren't indexed and you have to look at each image.

There are other records available on the FREE site:  https://familysearch.org/search/  

There is an image associated with the death record above.  I also see that they have the marriage records.  I can search for descendants, but is there a profile where I can add the sources as I find them?

Thank you Jane I am thrilled !! what do you mean by a profile  for these people? I am sorry to be so dumb but I am not up with all this genealogy talk

We build one unique "profile" for each individual on WikiTree, so that we have one BIG tree and not many trees for the same family.  (Unlike Family Search and Ancestry)
So, your profile is "WikiTree Profile: Bean-4067"  When you enter information into WikiTree, the system will build profiles for your ancestors.  For example, if you enter your father or your mother, WikiTree will suggest similar profiles (because we only one one unique profile per person) and if you don't see it, you will create a new one. You will then be the "profile manager" for that profile.  

I will be happy to help you build your family tree and "link in" to the many families that are connected in our huge database.  You will find ancestors that you did not even know that you have.

Start by adding the ancestors that you already know, like grandparents, by adding the father and mother to the profiles that you create for your parents.
