Page 4 - Some volumes cannot be searched specifically for an ancestor's name. Localities often appear as subject headings, however, so if one knows where an ancestor lived, or has found a person with the same name as an ancestor in a certain locality, it is possible to check documents relating to that area in hopes of finding something interesting about, or related to the ancestor — perhaps a petition or other document the ancestor signed.
