5 Minute Genealogy Episode 10: Using Name Variations to Find a Record
You may have asked yourself:
“I am searching everywhere, but I can’t seem to figure out where my ancestors are or why their names keep changing. How do I know where my ancestors are?”
Immigration, challenges with reading or writing, or simple spelling changes made between generations are a few reasons that family names changed over time. Name changes can cause your research to hit a brick wall.
In this episode, Jesse and Tom will show you some reasons why family names change over time.
You will learn how to use online forums, research locations, and recognize markings on records that will help you broaden your search and find your ancestors.
