Finding Family

Yesterday, I realized something. All tips that I write about are things that have come up as I do my own research. I have told you to search under a mother's maiden name if you can't find the family. Usually, a woman will use her maiden name, in Hispanic families, after her husband passes. This would be a way to search for the woman and her children, by searching under her maiden name. But did you realize that there is one more way that I neglected to mention. If the woman remarries, her children belonging to her previous husband might be listed under the new husband's surname, especially in the census. Sometimes, you don't realize that you know what you know and forget to share it.
