Then turn to that section of this outline. (The terms used in columns 2 and 3 are the same as the topic headings used in this outline and in the “Locality Search” section of the Family History Library Catalog.)Column 3 contains additional records that may also be useful.Records containing previous research (genealogies [including family histories], biographies, histories, periodicals, and societies) could provide information for nearly all of the goals.
