Inspect sources in family search

with No Comments

If your ancestor is listed in familysearch.org, chances are there are some sources attached to them about their birth, death, etc.

Sometimes the details on the sources give you some other clues. Eg, the source on the person’s birth might be from a relative’s obituary. That relative might already be in familysearch.org family tree, so searching for that relative might provide some more info on the person being researched.
