Issue 36-Problem-Solving a New York Native born abt 1820

Issue 36 is being wrapped up as this blog post runs live. My proofer is travelling this week so things might be a little delayed reaching your inbox, but we are working behind the scenes.

Issue 36 focuses on how I'm going to tackle finding the origins of Benjamin Butler, born in New York State about 1820. His 1850 census enumeration provides some research suggestions that we will use to direct further research.

Not every problem can be solved in exactly the same way. This will be another problem we'll look at as the research is progressing. It may be nice to have a "neat complete" package, but it seems to be more instructive to discuss the approach and the method, even when those approaches or methods do not work.
