Did they move back and forth?

Keep in mind that your ancestor may have moved back and forth. Not everyone followed a general path in just one direction.

I'm working on a person now who was in Iowa in 1856, Missouri in 1860, Iowa in 1870-1895, Missouri in 1900, Wyoming in 1910 and in Missouri in 1912.

Oh, and she was born in either New York state or Canada.

  1. I've noticed this. In particular, there seems to have been a big "move back and forth" movement between South Carolina and Georgia among the people I have researched: grow up in SC, move to GA for 5-10 years, move back to SC.
