Have you ever wondered how to create a tree or branch from just a few clues?
Here are the steps I took to complete a branch for Helen Campbell Gillette.
(Links to items are at the bottom of this posting)
I found an obituary for Helen Campbell Gillette.
I then found a bio for her husband Edward
The Fleisher Family needs to be tied in to Gillette or Campbell.
I still do not have a confirmation that my Helen of the Obit is the Helen of the Isabell Campbell family.
I find a death notice.
Then I find the new Obit.
No more question. I have a confirmation.
I find a death notice for Isabelle as a married woman.
So the branch is complete.
But it took more than just these 17 steps; there were many leads that I had to follow.
