Elusive Ancestors?

No, They're Never "too Poor to Trace!"

Spoken-word CD - 2016
Rate this:
"Too poor to trace!" is the common conclusion--but one that's often wrong. Many neglected sources include propertyless men, women, and children. Sure-fire techniques can be used to develop clues, even in records that do not specifically name our ancestors. This session discusses some of the cultural and bureaucratic reasons why ancestors seem to be "too poor to trace." It surveys many of the places where even the poor can be found. And it shows you ways in which a web of evidence can be woven around "poor" ancestors in order to identify their parents and origins.
