Think Outside of the Box!

What I learned today. Today while researching a post on one of the Genealogy! Just Ask pages, I was reminded of how important it is to “think out side of the box”. Sometimes I think the reason a complete stranger to a database has more success than the owner of the tree is they have no known knowledge of the family. No knowledge of how they spelled the name, or where they lived. No knowledge of even who they married or a list of children. They are using the skills and tricks they know for online researching or knowledge of onsite searching that may help the researcher. It’s a great reminder to me when I can’t find what I need to start from what I know and work back. So many new collections,
