Who Do You Think You Are?

Sarah’s T p Tip

When you find someone on the census, check who else lived nearby


My tip this month is inspired by a letter that a reader has sent in.

Mandy Janes ( page 7) was researchin­g her husband’s family when she noticed a familiar name in the street of one of his ancestorsa­ncestors. Exploring the connection helped explain how a couple who later married may have met. Search a few pages either side of an ancestor’s entry in the census to get a feel for an area.
