Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
 How do you research black sheep ancestors, those relatives who might be difficult to research for any one of a number of different reasons? Ron Arons talks about using "standard" genealogical records (census, vital records, city directories, etc.) but also talks about other specific records available only for those who broke the law or came close to doing so. Specific recommendations will be given regarding the methodology of researching such characters.
