Finding American Family Prior to 1840

I am having issues trying to find family prior to 1840. The 1840 federal census is when it just lists head of house with a tally of peoples living within the house.

I have tried to find death certificates but those are hard to come by, as are obits. Does anyone have a good tip for finding American ancestors when the census isn't working?

Thanks.
