In past lessons, we have discussed how immigrants were not alone, that they often immigrated with others, or followed friends and family to the New World. The same is true about family historians. Usually, they are not the only persons interested in a particular ancestor.
Others are also researching your ancestors, and especially your immigrants. Finding those other researchers is an important part of immigrant origins research. Indeed, the concept of locating the results of previous researchers' efforts is a primary axiom of genealogical research. But nowhere is it more important than with research into the origins of immigrants.
