Cluster genealogy

Filed under: Pohl's Backyard — larrypohl @ 4:41 pm

I may have to look into this approach to get past the “road block” I’m experiencing getting through to my paternal grandfather’s side of the family.

Cluster genealogy is a research technique employed by genealogists to learn more about an ancestor by examining records left by the ancestor’s cluster. A person’s cluster consists of the extended family, friends, neighbors, and other associates such as business partners.[1] Researching the lives of an ancestor’s cluster leads to a more complete and more accurate picture of the ancestor’s life.

1852 New Year Resolutions to Solve Genealogical Mysteries

This was posted to a genealogy list I’m on.

“I resolve to see to it that all of my children will have the same given names that my ancestors have used for six generations in a row, and as much as practical, they shall all have the same names as their cousins….”

Sound familiar ?

What I’m going to talk about here: Genealogy

Filed under: Pohl's Backyard — larrypohl @ 10:10 pm

I’ll be using some of this space to share some of the information I manage to pick up from time to time on the Pohl, Lange, Altstadt and Zimmer families. I’ll also be commenting on genealogical research more generally.
