Researching Deeper

As county lines changed and were sub-divided, records of persons fell into other counties. Also, as some families resided near county lines, they were occasionally missed by census-takers. This is why we search the records in the adjoining counties. The parent county may have been sub-divided several times. This is why it is important to discover the parent county and pay attention to the date of formation.
