Navigating Roadblocks

Clark Doan of Tennessee Genealogical Society gave a wonderful interactive lecture on Navigating Roadblocks. With his permission, I want to share with you some of the things discussed that night. He put us into groups and each of us was given a question to answer. Below are the questions and some of the replies each group gave. See what you might can add to these lists!

PART ONE: “Thorough County Research”

In the damaged county, what are some things you need to know before you start?
What other things might you explore?

PART TWO: “State and National Records”
What possible records might you find regarding your county in the State Archives?
What might you find in the National Archives or the Field Branches?
PART THREE: “Related Counties”
  • Earlier counties that might have the records
  • Later (daughter) counties that might have the records
  • Neighboring Counties

  • Map Guide to the U.S. Federal Censuses, 1790-1930
  • References
  • Census
  • The Handy Book for Genealogists
  • Guides
