Put Everything in Context
Put every event in context. If your ancesor sells property, ask yourself:
how old was he?
was he getting ready to leave the area?
was he having financial problems?
was he selling to a child or other relative?
did he buy other property about the same time?
Don't look at a record all by itself. Put it in the context of other things that were taking place in your ancestor's life.
