Why haven't you found your ancestors in the records? Documents are often hidden from view, with information that is present but concealed, stored in a place or a manner that is unexpected, misspelled, indexed incorrectly, or separated from the other similar records. We'll explore strategies for tracking down these elusive ancestors so that we don't miss a single detail.
