Ever Go Back?

Recently I was reviewing some estate records I viewed several years ago at the Family History Library. A second look at the handwritten index indicated I had missed a reference to the estate. That second reference contained several names that may be crucial in my research. All because I went back and looked a second time. Is there something you can look at again on the off chance something was overlooked?

If you are curious about what I located, there's a blog post about it on the Casefile Clues blog.


  1. Good advice! It's easy to overlook something, particularly in hand-written records if the microfilm is old and scratched!

  2. Great advice Michael. You just never know what you might have missed the first time around, which is why I always take a second look.
