Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is an interview with Certified Genealogist® Kimball Carter. We discuss Kimballs’ fourth great grandmother, Anne Carter, and the challenging research he undertook to determine her identity and relationships. Anne died in 1789 in Westmoreland County, Virginia and appears in numerous family trees and authored works as the wife of Thomas Carter. Her maiden name was given variously as Neale, Hunter, or Claytor. Kimball noticed some discrepancies in the research about Anne and spent years researching colonial Virginia records to discover the truth about her spouse and origin, finally determining that she was not married to Thomas Carter.
