Go Beyond the Abstract

Most of us know by this time the value of finding original records. But sometimes is it tempting to stop our search when we find a credible looking abstract…after all it, was taken from the original, wasn’t it?

Paula Stuart-Warren writing is Paula’s Genealogical Eclectica gives us her personal experience in going beyond the abstract. She found that the value in doing so wasn’t necessarily because the abstract was incorrect, it was because it was so incomplete.

Her experience is a lesson to us all. Check out the article at:
