Googling Your Ancestor's Attorney

Sometimes it can be insightful to perform Google searches on attorneys named in your ancestor's documents. This attorney appointment looked odd until it was discovered that he lived near the nearest land office and would handle the final paperwork in a 19th century bounty land claim.

  1. I don't always think to do this, but one time I looked for the attorney in the census records and found that he was boarding with the family of my ancestor. It might not mean anything, but it's still an interesting little tidbit.
