I am trying to find out more information about my grandmother, Rosetta L. Miles.  I have no money to use for paid services, so I can only look for the free info.  All I have is my grandmother's name and a possible bith date. What do I do now?  I can't ask any family members because the living ones don't remember and the others are dead.

You need to provide her birth date or approximate birth date and a location where she was born/lived/died for better assistance.  You didn't state what COUNTRY>Province or State - which would really help. 

Any other information such as spouses, children and their dates narrow it down considerably.   Is Miles her married or maiden name?

Putting in Rosetta Miles, birth US between 1880 and 1920 - came up with 15,153 results!!!!!  Born in NY, AL, MO, MI, KY, LA etc etc.  shown at URL below:
