As researchers progress back in time tracing an elusive ancestor, fewer record sources seem to be available.

And in some areas totally unique sources may be overlooked if not pointed out in advance by experienced researchers who have spent years using those sources. Karen will demonstrate how to expand your personal research success into the past.
