U.S. Federal Census
What new information were you able to glean from taking a fresh look at census records? If your ancestor emigrated from Great Britain, you may want to look at the census records from the decades they were residing there. Keep in mind, Great Britain runs their census on the 1s, meaning 1901, 1911, 1921, etc.
WWI/II Draft Records
How did your newspaper search go this past week? Were you successful? Did you find that your ancestors were listed as guests at a party? Or perhaps you found them listed in an article about a family reunion? Often times we only find marriage and obituary announcements. Those are good, too, because they provide us with names of relatives and possible vital record dates.
