If you have the name of the person, then go to Research > Search records and enter the name you are after. This will search the whole of the BG database world wide. This will probably get 1000's of matches, so the more you can narrow it down to a country or a particular state the better. If you are not sure and have a common name then search the state you think most likely and then any adjoining states rather then the whole country.
