Topic for Issue 45--Organizing My Search for Ira

Regular Casefile Clues readers know that I'm looking for the parents of my Ira Sargent, born ca. 1843 in Canada.

Issue 45 discusses my new approach to Ira based upon records discussed in previous issues. The issue includes charts organizing my search, why specific records from the Family History Library was searched, and why certain approaches were put lower on the level of priority.

Issue 46 will discuss the results of my search and where the research will proceed from there. After issue 46, we'll leave Ira alone for awhile unless readers would like me to attempt to obtain copy of his records from the mental institution in Illinois where he was a resident from ca. 1906 until his death in 1916.

If you'd like to see those records, comment to this post or email me at
