Have You Cleaned Our Your Assumption Closet?

When was the last time you cleaned out your assumptions? For years I never really researched a widowed ancestor who went to Iowa in the 1860s to live with her children because "what could there be?"

Turns out she purchased three small parcels of property and had a nice estate settlement full of information. Did I get "new" relatives? No. Did I learn more about the ancestor? Yes.

Are there assumptions keeping you from finding information?
