When doing genealogy research, what's the best way to find twins in your ancestor's records?

In most states, birth certificates didn't exist until the early 1900s. So, if there are twins in your family, how would you go about tracing the line they came from?

    You obviously are not familiar with how to use or you would know that death, marriage and birth records are not wishful thinking. Here's an example of a heading. I won't be saying more.

    Ontario Marriages, 1869-1927, James Smith 1892

    Twins may not "run" permanently. My gm had identical twin brothers, and one of her daughters had identical twin daughters in the 1930s, the last set of twins on that side of the family. Being fraternal, your Gran and sister were perhaps just a fluke!
