Researching our ancestors involves not only finding their origins, tracking them through different times and places, and viewing them in their social context, but also looking at their relatives, associates, and neighbors. This presentation shows how to apply cluster and collateral research techniques to your genealogical research problems. Topics include research planning, commonly used resources and documents, and a case study following individuals’ migrations from Europe to the U.S., overcoming name and residence changes, and using DNA evidence.
