Is there a particular record that you have avoided working with because you donâ€™t have experience with it? Land records? Tax lists? Coronersâ€™ records? Court records? Take the bull by the horns this week and do some research into that record type and its availability in the areas you are researching. Start with a reference book, or look for an article on the subject in the Ancestry Library. Follow up with research on the websites of repositories that may hold these records and determine what records are available and how they can be accessed (e.g., snail mail requests, online and e-mail requests, interlibrary loan, etc.). Then make it happen. Youâ€™ll wonder why you ever put it off!
