What’s the Tie?

If your ancestor moved from point A to point B, what was the “tie” that took them there?

Was it a relative? Was it a job? Was it the ability to evade the law? Was it the ability to “start over?” Was it a financial opportunity? Was it free or cheap land? Was it their church? Was it something else?

People don’t often move without any reason or connection to the area.
