Helen Campbell Gillette Obit 1907

Have you ever wondered how to create a tree or branch from just a few clues?

Here are the steps I took to complete a branch for Helen Campbell Gillette.

(Links to items are at the bottom of this posting)

I found an obituary for Helen Campbell Gillette.

000
I started a tree for her.
001


I then found a bio for her husband Edward

002

003


004

005

The Fleisher Family needs to be tied in to Gillette or Campbell.


006

007
So Effie Fleisher is a Campbell.

008


009

010


011


I still do not have a confirmation that my Helen of the Obit is the Helen of the Isabell Campbell family.

012


I find a death notice.

013

Then I find the new Obit.

014


No more question. I have a confirmation.

015


I find a death notice for Isabelle as a married woman.

016


So the branch is complete.

017


But it took more than just these 17 steps; there were many leads that I had to follow.

Thank You.
