Extracting the detail

TLDR: Weird ideas to find records to validate some one.

So I have covered physically talking to some and when to tackle the barely cold record changes...

So now it is about that next step out of the village that raised you or watched you grow through word of mouth from living relatives.

Simple starts include:

Taking someone you have stories about and confirm their data... confirming can lead you on a trail for more details.

Googling newspapers to see if there are any vital announcements.

  • the announcements like funeral announcements may include the close relatives that may be grieving = direct relatives

  • cause of death, date (time some times), and intended disposal [loose terms cremation, burial, etc]  location

  • basic bio- employment, birth-death, siblings and schooling

  • birthplace, time and parents

Engagement announcements contain the parents and locations that the direct families come from giving you the next pin

  • location of parents, parents

  • full names

  • birthdays some times

  • employment

  • residence (older papers)

Bankruptcy and legal declarations, harsh but contain birthdate and full name for that one guy who uses alternative names to evade

  • full name

  • employment

  • birth

  • address

Divorce announcements

birth announcements

wedding announcements

Milking the proverbial ancestry.com or myheritage.com

  • some people have quite a bit but you may still want to hunt the black and white facts unless provided.

Getting certificates

  • Birth

  • Death

  • Divorce Decrees

  • School (fairly older)

  • Marriage

Travel Proofs

  • Immigration records

  • Emigration records

  • arrival notes from the piers
