Eventually your genealogy research will cross a border–a geographical one, a political one, or a chronological one. When it does, ask yourself:
- How is research different here than where I searched before?
- What different sources are there in this location/period?
- Are there any ways the research methods are different?
- Are there cultural differences I need to be aware of?
- Is there any other way that the research is “different?”
Not realizing that research in a new location or time period could be different may lead to additional research roadblocks.
