Take a Minute for Unindexed Records

Judy Russell in her blog The Legal Genealogist gives us an interesting perspective on the value of un-indexed records…you know, images available on line that you cannot yet search by name. It’s like the days of “old” when you had to scroll through a reel of microfilm looking for the entries of interest to you.

Judy makes the point that you can glean valuable information about the records themselves, and about the times in which the records were made by casually reading records at random—while searching for those dealing with your ancestor.

It is a refreshing take on a situation most of us dread getting into. Read what she has to say at The joy of unindexed records | The Legal Genealogist
