You have to know where to get this information, and how to verify that you do have the right places and dates.

The information you find through birth records will give date of birth as well as location. That you probably already know. However, what is very helpful, besides the obvious, is that parents are also listed on these records.

That is information on which you can count, and is invaluable in researching a family tree.
You can find birth records by sending out for them, but that can be very time consuming. Instead, see what you can find online. More and more people are having good luck with this today, as new information is added to various genealogy sites each and every day.
