In this new article, I detail the process for researching an entire community of people whether it is an immigrant or church community. It differs from traditional genealogy in that you are starting in a particular time and place instead of the present, and researching people who may or may not be related to each other. I also discuss the challenges of keeping track of all the data collected. The best thing about community research is that no matter what database or primary documents you are using on a particular day, you will almost always find something relevant to your project. To start your community research project read the article in the August/September 2013 issue of Internet Genealogy.
