Have the Original?

If you are completely certain you have exhausted every source on an ancestor, go back and review your material. Is there any piece of information you have that is from a transcription of a document or record? Could that transcription be wrong or incomplete? Even if you are not "stuck" on an ancestor and "think you know everything," consider getting the actual record if you only have a transcription. You may be surprised at what you discover.
