randymajors.com website and I featured in Family Tree Magazine

Many thanks to Family Tree Magazine for featuring me in their May/June 2017 "5 Questions" Q&A column, part of their regular "Genealogy Insider" section.  In other news: Who knew I was an insider? :)


It was also great fun co-authoring an article with Sunny Jane Morton in the same issue of the magazine.  Previewed on the cover as "4 Ways to Find Ancestors with Old Maps", the 8-page feature article beginning on page 48 is called "Moving Targets" and provides genealogy research suggestions for what to do when the ancestor you are researching apparently falls off the map.


The article also includes a case study that I wrote that incorporates all of the research suggestions into one narrative.

The article isn't posted online, but the May/June 2017 Family Tree Magazine issue can be purchased or downloaded here.  (No, I don't receive proceeds from the sales.)  I hope you find some useful ideas in the article!
