Review Those Unvisited Families

It never hurts to go back and review those families that you have not worked on in some time. An ancestor was used as an example in a seminar I gave over the weekend and while reviewing my notes, I realized that it had been some time since I had made a serious attempt to document the children and grandchildren of her second oldest daughter. It’s time. In doing so, I may learn more about the ancestor we share, but there’s more than that. I might:

  • discover relatives who have information or family ephemera that I do not;
  • get names to help me sort my DNA matches that are “unknown.”
  • connect to a new relative who is interested in genealogy.

Time to get back to work on Aunt Louise.
