Relatives should not be overlooked. They have some valuable family information to tell us....they just don’t always know that. They are the best source for recent places to search. By that I mean, their own lifetime remembrances and events. They know where their parents were buried, and grandparents, which might unfold another generation of relatives. We have imperfect memories, however, we can usually recall a certain year by events revolving around ourselves. When speaking with relatives, always ask questions like “was Aunt Mae the oldest?” “Did she die after your sister, or before? How old were you when she died?” Tidbits of information such as this usually becomes an important part to the puzzle. A good place to meet cousins is on the telephone; pick up the phone in the area where your parents grew up, and phone persons having the same surname. Be friendly. Get yourself invited into their homes. As you discuss old memories, they will bring out old bibles, and photographs.
