  Bridging the Biography
Bridging the Biography

Biographies from county histories are an excellent genealogical source. Today many of these county histories, particularly those from the later nineteenth century, have been digitized and placed on the Internet. Thousands of them can be downloaded for free. This week we look at a biography of a Boston native and see what clues it tells us about his life and how to organize the personal details the biography contained.

The 1882 biography of Andrew Trask is fairly short, but full of information.

The complete article ran on 19 May 2009 and can be viewed on the Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter site.

I write "Casefile Clues" a weekly genealogy newsletter focusing on genealogy research methodology and interpretation. Every week I look at a record or a problem from one of the many families of my children scattered across the US and Europe. "Casefile Clues" does not try to "scoop" the latest news, rather I focus on using and interpreting records. My goal is to give you ideas to help you with your own research. Since 1995, I have written over 600 genealogy columns for both Ancestry and Eastman's Online Newsletter. My new columns for Casfile Clues are distributed only through this site.
