How to Find Your Ancestor by Researching Other People
From one of my favorite Amys, Amy Johnson Crow: How to find your ancestor by researching other people. “Most of us don’t have unlimited time to spend researching our ancestors. It’s natural to want to spend our research time focused on our ancestors. But when we aren’t finding the answers we’re looking for, it can be well worth our time to start researching other people — people who may not even be related to us.” Indirect means are often useful when doing search engine research as well.
