Sara's Genealogy Research
Sara's Tip of the Month:
It takes a village. How often in your genealogy research have you completely researched a family line all on your own using only one source? That never happens, right? There always seems to be little bits and pieces of information that don't quite make sense and those are items that we have to settle. I have found this with my own family research and that of my clients. Sometimes you are working with county histories, which are rich in detailed family information. They explain how Aunt Martha had two husbands in quick succession both named Harold. Thus solving your age issue that popped up one day.
The more sources you use in your research the better. Newspapers, family lore (as careful as you need to be on that part to prove these tales right or wrong), census, vital records, etc. These pieces all help your research and they all come from different venues.
Don't be afraid to look for new sources. Librarians are your best resource here, they can guide you to sources you never knew existed. Don't be afraid to ask for help, remember it takes a village.
