You can’t find record of your immigrant ancestor’s arrival. Great-grandpa has gone missing from the 1910 census—and his mother apparently had no maiden name.
These are classic genealogy stumbling blocks—but you probably feel like you’ve run up against a brick wall anytime you’ve looked and looked and you just can’t find an ancestor.
Our newest CD, Research Remedies: Best Strategies to Beat Brick Walls and Track Elusive Ancestors, is just for you.
This CD has Family Tree Magazine’s best brick wall-busting help, including:
- proven research techniques such as cluster genealogy and reverse genealogy
- solutions to common problems such as elusive ancestors, burned courthouses, hard-to-use pre-1850 US censuses (which name only heads of households), early immigrants, and more
- tips for finding and using often-overlooked and underused resources, such as coroners’ reports, outbound passenger lists, nonpopulation censuses, marriage bonds and others, that may hold the answers you need
- worksheets to help you organize your research strategy and track conflicting information
One of my favorite things about this CD is that you can watch the tips in action: It also contains our hour-long Brick Wall Strategies webinar.
