March Madness 2024: Expand Your Genealogical Game Beyond BMD!

Get in the Game: Score Big with Genealogical Research Madness!

Just like in March Madness, expanding your playbook beyond the basics of births, marriages, and deaths is key to crafting a winning family history strategy. While these events provide a solid foundation, they’re just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to uncovering your ancestors’ stories.

New researchers often stick to the easy shots, focusing solely on these vital records. But by broadening your horizons and exploring a diverse range of records, you’ll be making slam dunks left and right. From land deeds to military service files, each record offers a chance to dribble past the defense and score valuable insights into your ancestors’ lives.

Don’t get boxed in by tradition—break out of the mold and explore the full court of genealogical records available. With every jump shot into land deeds, layup into military service files, and three-pointer into church registers, you’ll be enriching your understanding of your family’s history and heritage.

So lace up your sneakers, grab your playbook, and join the Genealogical Research Madness today! With the right strategy and a little bit of hustle, you’ll be cutting down the nets of discovery and scoring big on your family history journey.
