Who is the Guardian?

If any minor children of your ancestor had guardians appointed for them, determine what other relationship they had to the children or the deceased parents. While guardians of the children's estate were not necessarily guardians of their person, they could be a step-father, uncle, grandparent, etc.

Guardians of any sibling of your ancestor are just as important to your research as your ancestor--after all, they share the same parents.
