Helen Campbell Gillette Obit 1907

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.

000
I started a tree for her.
001


I then found a bio for her husband Edward

002

003


004

005

The Fleisher Family needs to be tied in to Gillette or Campbell.


006

007
So Effie Fleisher is a Campbell.

008


009

010


011


I still do not have a confirmation that my Helen of the Obit is the Helen of the Isabell Campbell family.

012


I find a death notice.

013

Then I find the new Obit.

014


No more question. I have a confirmation.

015


I find a death notice for Isabelle as a married woman.

016


So the branch is complete.

017


But it took more than just these 17 steps; there were many leads that I had to follow.

Thank You.

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.
