Professional Genealogists Go Sideways To Find Ancestors!

Professional genealogists don’t always depend on going straight back to find ancestors.  This is the most obvious approach to doing genealogy research to determine your family history.  However, many times the answer does not exist in that direct line approach.  Genealogy research sometimes requires going sideways, or researching the siblings of your direct line ancestor.  When you hit a brick wall find your ancestors siblings and research their birth, marriage, death, or burial records to find their parents.  Then you will be ready to continue on with your genealogy research!
