Search for Locations-Not Just Names

Are you searching a digital version of that county history, biography book, etc.? Try searching for locations as well as names. It can be a great way to see what other biographies and similar material in the book mentions locations where your ancestor was from. A search of an Illinois county history for "coshocton ohio" located several references to people from that county--besides my ancestor. A great way to get names of potential former neighbors, associates, and possible relatives.
