Outside your village

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.

  1. Googling newspapers to see if there are any vital announcements.

  2. the announcements like funeral announcements may include the close relatives that may be grieving

  3. direct relatives

  4. cause of death, date (time some times), and intended disposal[lose term cremation, burial, etc]  location

  5. basic bio- employment, birth death, siblings and schooling

  6. birth place, time and parents

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

  1. location of parents, parents

  2. full names

  3. birthdays some times
