Inconsistent Secondary Sources

The latest issue of Casefile Clues went out today (a little late). It discusses a 20th century problem in the Chicago area where the secondary sources are (surprise) inconsistent. The analysis and discussion is applicable to other time periods and sources as well. This is a family I have written on before, but one that just about every confusing thing that could happen did.

Those who subscribe by Tuesday night will be sent yesterday's issue as next week's piece is a follow up to it (where the location of the christening record is discussed). I can't believe it has been a month since I moved "Casefile Clues" to it's own site and began distributing it myself.
