Tuesday's Tip - Read GenealogyInTime Magazine

This week's Tuesday's Tip is to:  Read the articles in the FREE GenealogyInTime online magazine.

GenealogyInTime (http://www.genealogyintime.com/is a free online genealogy magazine with a genealogy search engine, a family tree search engine, lists of new genealogy databases, and many excellent articles in their archives.

The articles are listed by clicking on the "Articles" menu item on the screen above.  The Articles page is http://www.genealogyintime.com/genealogy-articles.html.

The Articles are separated into groups:

*  How to Get Started in Genealogy
*  How to Find Genealogy Records Online
*  Genealogy Brickwall Solutions
*  Important Genealogy Tools
*  Important Genealogy Trends
*  Genealogy Reference Shelf
*  Miscellaneous Stuff

I was curious about four Genealogy Brickwall Solutions articles - there are 100 tips in these articles that might help researchers break down one or more of their brick wall problems.  They're worth a look!

For instance, one of them is:

37. Widows Remarrying – Except for the last couple of decades, economic necessity usually required a widow with children to remarry fairly quickly. It was not uncommon for a woman would remarry within three to four months of the death of her late husband. As well, women usually picked the church where they were married. These two facts can be used to your advantage. One way to trace the marriage of a widow is to start with the local church records from the date of the wake of her late husband and read forward on a day-by-day basis. Don’t be surprised to find a wedding within six months. This trick also works backwards. Start on the wedding day of the widow and go backward in time a couple of months and you will probably find the details on the death of the previous husband.
