5 LOOK FOR OTHER REL­A­TIVES

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - CENSUS SEARCHING -

Most data­bases now let you search for groups of peo­ple liv­ing to­gether by en­ter­ing the name of a spouse and/or child or other house­hold mem­ber on the search form, which can help to nar­row down the re­sults if the fam­ily had a very pop­u­lar sur­name. It’s equally worth sin­gling out a rel­a­tive with a nice un­usual first name to search for in­stead of your di­rect an­ces­tor – per­haps Fred­er­ick Hig­gins’ sib­ling Ur­sula or his child Bene­dict will be more eas­ily iden­ti­fi­able than he is.
