Inventory searches: an often over looked part of an estate that may list names (survivors, creditors and debtors) along with giving an economic snap shot of the individuals life. It may also show associations with other individuals who may not be relatives, but neighbors, financial people or skilled tradesmen.

Newspaper searches to identify a public life: business, service or legal participation in lawsuits, juries, politics, civil jobs held and military incidents.
