Genealogy Friday: Chasing Rabbit Trails

posted in: Genealogy | 0

In genealogy it is very easy to go chasing rabbit trails.rabbit trails

So what does this mean?

For example, last weekend I went to the library looking for obituaries on a specific family to further my research.

However, reading one of the obituaries, I noticed a familiar surname from another line.  Of course, I had to explore this connection.  I went chasing the rabbit trail to discover the connection in this family.

There are numerous reasons we may go chasing a rabbit trail, or veer off of the line or course we are currently working on.  The fun part is chasing those trails and discovering the journey and new finds.

What are some ways you have gone chasing rabbit trails?
