sometimes you can work your back into your family ancestry by estimating dates ( Not a good practice )I have found the average age in between families in general is averaging ( 22 )so when we research we look for an earlier date -Say ( 22 ) use 5 yrs +/- until we pick up a lead. Ancestory in the is also very good as you can follow the codes = Letters and Numbers - they do change and you have to watch for it but the usually still carry a part of the old code in the middle section. Pedigrees can also be a help . Most of the united States / canada was settled from The british Isles - England -scotland - wales . the uk was in turn settled by central europe who came via - germany -france - spain - netherlands - Denmark - sweden - Norway . -
Death registers are another tool to find old ancestry And you can often come forward - Birth / marriage registers are the same.Ships and passenger listings are and can be of great assistance. Their are many more ways to many to mention . Most of finding ones ancestors is usally a lot of research and keeping a good base of wesites / records / Etc for reference so you can save time -. Some times you may put up a name ( surname ) on world wide and see where they are and how the name is spelt - their is no easy way - WE all have many failures and a few small gains - Good hunting - regards

I have to say,my problem is my INFO.I started with little ,yet it was as far as Ive found all Ive had to rely on others to gather the rite info for me.It feels like searching in hay stack-how can I tell if I have the rite person ,as so many with same name,date?Then I get stuck due to NOT knowing the next person info,or where to look??Im searching Susanah Chamberline -but it mite be another name or date or?All I have is her name -mar-to Josiah Procotor-who was dad to Josiah Proctor who mar-Almira Hodges.Im unable to get any info ,unless Ive misplaced it?Im not sure if I have her -someone had children.?WHERE??No clue.Janet
