You should make a post about researching that kind of stuff. I'd read the SHIT out of that

You can't put the space between the @ and the name.

Another vote for @wahala to do it. I was trying to research my family not too long ago, had no idea what I was doing, and finally gave up after several hours with barely any info and a ton of frustration.

The first step is by talking to all your family members. One of the best sources of finding names/locations is photo albums. When photos were rare/more important they often had the date/location/people. Also ask if journals/diaries were kept. You would be amazed at how willing people are to loan you what they have if you plan on making a family tree. As well, it is common that people will often take all family documents in a box (after a funeral) and blindly store them. So if you get an answer such as, "I think we have a box of stuff" you will often find some good stuff.

Another great place to look is the Church. They keep records of all members/baptisms/weddings etc.
