Diane Haddad writing in the Genealogy Insider blog, presents us with her personal experience showing that the “going broad” strategy worked. She uses the term “cluster genealogy” to describe it. It simply means that sometimes to find one person we have to explore others—like aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, etc.
Diane’s article is easy to read and easy to follow because it is laced with ample pictures of the documents she used.
