Iceberg Genealogy

View every document or record that you find as an iceberg where the item you have located is only that portion which is viewable.

Underlying every document is a series of events that lead up to its creation. Think about all the events that had to happen to cause that record to have been created. Did those events create records or suggest details about your ancestor's life?

You've got the tip of the iceberg. Just don't forget that portion of it underneath the surface.
