Search Results on Ancestry.....what am I doing wrong?

Postby MaryGenottiCollins » 22 Jun 2008, 23:40

I've asked for help and you all have found things that I couldn't---can you fill me in on what I may be doing wrong?
I subscribe to ancestry where they have tons of records avail.

For instance, My aunt, born December 16, 1915 and died September 24, 2001.

She was born in WV and died in GA and buried in WV.

Should be fairly simple, right? Her maiden name was Boreman, marriage name TIGHE and remarried as an older woman w/name MISKEVICH. They lived in Florida and she was in a nursing home in GA at the end of her life.

Not sure why I cant find basic info on ancestry...is it them or me? :oops:

Mary:

When using search engines, sometimes "LESS IS MORE". Many indexes have typos and misspelled names.

I used "SOUNDEX" on the last name Miskevich along with the death year in the SS Death Index and as you can see Kathryn Miskevish came up.

that is it, her name was actually eunice catherine boreman (Miskevich) but she went by catherine.

I am going to keep trying till I get it right, I'll try the "less is more" and see what happens.

Thanks for your help.
