Not Directly Connected

The individuals that may help you track your ancestor may not always be direct ones. In trying to research on relative who moved from Canada to Michigan in the 1840s, the easiest person in the group to track (because  of his name) was the father-in-law of the ancestor's brother who also moved with the brothers. 

The best way sometimes to extend your direct line is to get away from your direct line.
