Who Else On the Same Day?

When locating a record, determine who else “did the same thing” on that same day? This is easier to do with records filed in chronological order.

Who naturalized on the same day as your ancestor? Who filed a declaration of intention on the same day as your ancestor? Who had a deed recorded on the same day as your ancestor?

Those other people could be associates of your ancestor. That chance is increased the further your ancestor lived from the courthouse.
