Sometimes tracking one's immigrant ancestors tests all one's research acumen. Identifying individuals, their origins, and parentage; tracking them through time; and constructing biographies to place them in their social context is best approached by broadening one's approach to include family members, associates and neighbors. This presentation will outline a research program for solving genealogical research problems via cluster and collateral research techniques. Topics will include: appropriate application, research planning, commonly used resources and documents, utilization of DNA testing results, and case studies successfully tracking individuals from Europe to the United States, overcoming name and residential changes.
