Are You Ignoring Those Other Names?

Research before 1850 in the United States presents special challenges--particularly in those areas that were a part of the frontier.

If your "brick wall" ancestor appears on a list of early settlers, consider searching for the origins of his "early neighbors." It may be that they were neighbors before they settled in that new area as well.
