Are there research techniques you’ve missed or under-applied? Here’s an example:
You’re probably aware that the 1880 U.S. census asked for the birthplace of a person’s
parents. Suppose you have an ancestor born in 1780, and his son, your direct line,
was born in 1800. Since both the father and son died prior to 1850, you might not

born in 1815… he might still be alive in 1880, and could give you the birth location

went through each person and looked for new research ideas? How long would that

deserve more attention.

of the site, GenSmarts tells you why you care – which of your ancestors you should
be searching for there. And… gives you a link so you can do that search in a single
