Genealogy Tip of the Day is written by Michael John Neill.
Michael has been actively involved in genealogy research since the
mid-1980s and writes and lectures on a variety of genealogy topics at a variety of levels. Tip of the Day is meant to make readers aware of topics they didn’t know about, remind others of topi
cs about which they’ve forgotten, or suggest slightly different ways of approaching research problems.
We just want you to keep thinking and analyzing as you research.
