All genealogy involves research, research and more research.  Sourcing documents, establishing dates and relationships but it’s not always that simple.  Many organisations are involved in storing, scanning, indexing and publishing these much sought after snippets and much of this information has been lost or has not yet been published

We really never know where we might glean that vital record. When we’ve searched major databases without success we are always glad to find the more obscure list
