What happens when the subject of your genealogical research joins the carnival, moves across the country, says he is six years younger than he actually is, marries a couple of times and then dies suddenly leaving a wave of confusion in his wake?
Sometimes, the path of an ancestor can be long, convoluted and confusing, especially when you are limited to a small amount of evidence. When this happens, tracking an ancestor from cradle to grave and completing exhaustive research across regions can help to complete the story and answer burning questions. Join us to track the life of one such ancestor. We'll delve into vital records, newspapers, trade publications and more as we search for proof of identity.
