Those First Interactions in a New Area?

Look carefully at the names of other individuals who appear on legal documents with your ancestor during the first few years he lives in an area. Who are witnesses and other names mentioned in these documents? People with whom your ancestor is associating when he's not been in an area for too long could be people he knew "back home."

  1. Relatives and friends often moved from one area to another. I've seen this in several of my family lines.
