Reversing Gears: How To Find Living Relatives #general

Martin Fischer

I have written a how-to article for the GenealogyArchives web site that explains
how to use family history research techniques to track down previously unknown
living distant cousins. It includes a case study that started with my discovery of
an 1886 obituary of my great-great-grandfather in a St. Louis Jewish newspaper and
culminated in my being able to contact two living brothers who are my third cousins
You will find the article at Another article I recently
wrote provides a step-by-step introduction to genetic genealogy. It can be accessed
on the eHow web site at
