New Cousins (Second Edition)

How to Trace Descendants of Your Ancestors

Karen Bali

A5, 32 pages, ISBN: 978-1-906280-36-9


This book is a guide to descendant searching, that is looking for living relatives who are also descendants of our ancestors. It can be fascinating, rewarding and potentially life-changing. Research can lead you not   to long-dead ancestors but living, breathing relatives who share your genetic heritage - members of your extended family.

Descendant searching involves using many of the same research methods as traditional family history research to bring a search forward in time rather than working backward chronologically. Working from a chosen ancestor or family, a researcher can trace living descendants from the same family and link up to share information.
