Research All the Grandchildren

If you are "stuck" on a specific ancestor, have you completely researched all the way through their grandchildren? There may be direct clues in records on those individuals to help you on the grandparents, or there may be indirect clues (associates, etc.) that may help you on the actual ancestor you are working on.


  1. The grandparents might be living with a grandchild.

  2. Or the Grandchildren living with Grandparents. This happened on both sides of my family. Watch census though... sometimes the grandchildren are listed as children of the grandparents. That happened with my research too.
