Genealogical Research: Finding a clue to your missing ancestors often means thinking big.


Genealogical ResearchGetting the big picture of your ancestor is fundamental in good genealogy research. But, the big picture is not composed of a combination of records. The big picture of an individual always exists, because the person existed.

In order to see the big picture, we must take into consideration the whole of a person’s life, the possible range of events, the historical context, the location, the time period; we must consider the society and family circumstances in which they lived, and the culture and social relationships they had over a lifetime. This purposeful overview of an ancestor’s life, or timeline, guides us to discovering the actual events of their history through research and documentation.
