Thoroughly search all church records, land records, probate records and tax
Do research on collateral lines and known friends or neighbors of your
ancestor. In many cases the collateral lines, friends and neighbors
research will provide you with the information you need on your direct line.

Hi, I am also in the same boat with others,on hitting a brick wall.
Thru the people on line I have traced my husbands ancestry as such.
Jacob Craft, Capt. William Craft, James Madison Craft, Frank Craft,
Norman B. Craft Sr., Norman B. Craft Jr.. Since there are no census'
before 1790 how do you go back any further unless someone else has a
partially common genealogy as yours, and has posted it on the web? Or by
luck some one finds an old Bible. Or, you somehow find the early
New England Colony they migrated from. Connecticut, Massachsetts,
Plymouth or Rhode Island. I know others researching the Craft genealogy
seemed to have hit the same brick wall. Should I read genealogy 101
for starters? Regards, J Craft
