10 tips for tracing immigrants – FindMyPast 12 August 2020

I saw this on FindMyPast today – 10 tips for tracing immigrants: https://www.findmypast.com/blog/help/10-tips-to-help-you-trace-your-emigrant-ancestor. I hadn’t seen it before today even though it’s dated 12 August 2020. I check the site daily. For some reason, when I choose Quote block, WordPress is not letting me use the Quote block so I decided to copy the 10 tips with the link to the original article.
