    This forum is set aside for asking genealogy-related questions. Whether you’re looking for your lost Aunt Ada or wondering where to look for a farm title, this is the place to start. We have volunteers who receive e-mail notification whenever someone asks a question here.

    Here are some tips for asking good questions:

    • What do you want to know? be precise. Also, consider what kind of answer you are looking for: factually correct? an expert opinion? a reasonable judgement?
    • Avoid questions with yes or no answers. The 5 W’s and H of journalism are good questions – Who did What, Where, When, Why, and How? Questions with ‘are’, ‘do you think’, ‘is’, ‘should’, and ‘would’ tend to have binary, yes/no type answers.
    • Be patient. It may take days, or even weeks, for your question to be discovered by someone who knows the answer. Don’t jump on the first answer and assume it is the best, most-complete possible answer, either. Be polite, check the answer with another source, and maybe ask a follow-up question or two in order to verify an answer.

    I am attempting to find records relating to Clyde Boles (b. ca. 1882) and Bertha Gafford (b. ca 1883; d. ca. 1904), or any documentation related to their ancestry. I am uncertain as to their dates of birth or marriage date. An entry on suggested an entry in Franklin, AR
    Arkansas County Marriages Index, 1837-1957. Any information welcome. Thank You!
