Do you have gaps of missing information in your ancestor’s timeline? Using archives and the records they hold can fill in those gaps. Moving beyond the basic census records and vital records to unique records and records that are not online will help you fill in those gaps in your ancestor’s timeline. Visiting and contacting local and state archives is key in finding records about our ancestors that are not online and that can fill in the gaps in our ancestor’s timeline.
